I am drawn to Latin America, its familiar landscapes and colorful characters. Raised in a family of political activists in Recife, Brazil, I witnessed history unfold in my own home during the military regime. As a TV journalist in the region, I travelled on foot with FARC guerrillas in the jungles of Colombia, traversed through notoriously impenetrable favelas (or shanties) in Rio de Janeiro, spent time with indigenous leaders, land activists and biologists in some of the remotest areas of the Amazon. From presidents to laborers, CEOS to activists, from drug lords to celebrities, I have met some of the characters, newsmakers and catalysts making headlines in the region. Whether as a news editor or a reporter and producer in the field, I have helped generate original news stories from nearly every country in Latin America.
