About Me

I’m a journalist working at the intersections of technology, the environment, business, culture and society. I’ve reported from more than 40 countries from the tip of Sub-Saharan Africa to above the Arctic Circle. I was the founding editor of the Financial Times’ This is Africa publication, which I ran from 2008 to 2011, and I launched the (short-lived) British current affairs magazine Raconteur in 2016. I was briefly the business editor at the Huffington Post UK, and a producer at CNBC. I was the cover story editor of Nikkei Asia in Tokyo between 2019 and 2020.

My words and pictures have appeared in Wired, the Atlantic, the Financial Times, Newsweek, Monocle, the TLS and others.

I’m currently the enterprise editor at the non-profit tech publication Rest of World, which I joined as Southeast Asia editor in 2020. Here I oversee sprawling global projects and investigations.
