Will Carless


Will Carless is a freelance foreign correspondent based in Montevideo, Uruguay. He was formerly the head of investigations at the Voice of San Diego, a pioneering news organization in California. Will travels frequently to Brazil, Argentina and other countries in the region, where he digs into investigative and in-depth news stories for GlobalPost. He was raised in the United States, Brazil and England and speaks fluent Spanish and Portuguese, pretty average French and conversational Bahasa Indonesia, thanks to a two-year reporting stint in Central Java, 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 Spanish accents than he could ever hope for.
