I write biography and history that aims to speak equally to the specialist and the general reader. Born in London, I spent the 1990s as a journalist in Mexico, where I co-authored El Tigre: Emilio Azcárraga y su imperio Televisa (2000), a biography of the TV mogul EMILIO AZCÁRRAGA MILMO (1930-1997). A revised third edition, with a new Preface, appeared in July 2013.

In 2000 I began an M.A. in Latin American Studies at Berkeley, followed by a PhD in History at UT Austin. From 2009 until 2013, I taught History at Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi. As of August 2014, I am a research professor at the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (CIDE) in Mexico, where I teach history and journalism.

I recently completed a biography of WILLIAM JENKINS (1878-1963), once the richest industrialist in Mexico. The book is under contract with Oxford University Press (English) and Penguin Random House (Spanish) and will appear in 2016. My new project is a life of the global telecoms magnate CARLOS SLIM (b. 1940), who between 2007 and 2014 vied with Bill Gates as the world’s richest person.
