Regular contributor to: Deutsche Welle, RT, TRT, Daily Telegraph, The Times, The Independent, Financial Times, Al Jazeera.
Other information: Winner of the Club International de Prensa award for Best Foreign Correspondent in Spain, 2017. Reuters correspondent for 16 years in five countries, now freelancing in Madrid. Strong, versatile reporter whose career has ranged from interviewing the Dalai Lama to covering a World Cup. Equally adept at writing on train crashes in Spain as its debt crisis, or tense regional politics. I also report on neighbouring Portugal, a country in which I have lived and worked. I have also appeared on ITV and the BBC, as well as Spanish radio and TV stations . I have also had critical acclaim for several book-length translations from Spanish to English.
Very familiar with nearby Portugal, where I have also lived and worked.
