Buenos Aires, Argentina


I'm a British freelance journalist who covers the Southern Cone from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I string here for the New York Times, CS Monitor and the Daily Telegraph (UK), mainly reporting on breaking news. This year I have covered presidential elections in Paraguay, Hugo Chávez's death in Venezuela, and the election of Pope Francis in Argentina for the NY Times. I also hunt for news features and human interest stories: I interviewed a Paraguayan soccer player who survived a point-blank shooting to the head and returned to the field, despite being partially paralyzed. That story was for a British sports magazine. In April, I reported on transgenic soy monoculture in Paraguay and the disastrous effect it has on rural communities, who are poisoned by the chemicals used on plantations. Many are displaced to the cities, where they live in slums. I also produce video (I shoot with a Canon 600d and edit in Adobe Premiere). I produced a short video on a landfill orchestra in Paraguay for the Guardian newspaper (UK) and another for GlobalPost on a marijuana legalization bill in Uruguay.
