Douglas Portari is a journalist based in São Paulo, Brazil. Over the past 20 years I've written for both mainstream and independent media, from major newspapers and magazines to digital-native news outlets. I've covered a wide range of cultural, political and social issues, from articles on the UN mission in Haiti (in loco) to interviews with people such as the musicians Paul McCartney and Pete Townshend. I'm also one of the recipients of the 2019 Gabo Grant, a fellowship on cultural journalism of the Gabriel García Márquez Foundation. Currently working as a freelance journalist and fixer.
