Charles Newbery has been a journalist and writer for more than 20 years. Based in Buenos Aires, he specializes in business, energy and technology in Latin America. His work has appeared in Advertising Age, Al Jazeera, BusinessWeek, the Financial Times, MarketWatch, LatinFinance, Latin Trade, Platts, The New York Times, Variety and other publications. He's also written opinion pieces, reports and other content for Alexander Hughes, Disney, GeoPark, the Institute of the Americas, MercadoLibre, Millicom, Oxford Economics and the World Economic Forum.
With the frequent economic and political volatility in Latin America, Charles has gained a knack for covering fast-breaking news on tight deadlines as well as for ferreting out what's important, spotting trends and seeing the bigger picture. The result is effective, engaging and in-depth content that can explain complex issues in an easy-to-understand way.
Charles has a BA in English from the University of California, Los Angeles. When not writing, he can be found with his wife and three kids on the coast of Argentina, where there are some surprisingly good and empty beach breaks to surf.
