Will Carless is GlobalPost’s senior correspondent in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He has previously freelanced for GlobalPost from Uruguay and Indonesia. He was the head of investigations at the Voice of San Diego. In addition to covering Brazil, Will travels frequently around the region, where he digs into investigative and in-depth news stories. He was raised in the United States, Brazil and England and speaks fluent Spanish and Portuguese, pretty average French and conversational Bahasa Indonesia. He was the recipient of the 2008 Investigative Reporters and Editors medal and has been a finalist three times for the Livingston Awards for young journalists, which, sadly, he is now too old to ever win. A keen surfer, snowboarder, traveler and all-around inconvenient gringo, Will is married and has two little girls who are rapidly learning better Portuguese accents than he could ever hope for.
