I'm the author of Race for Tomorrow, a book about the global fight to respond to climate change.

​I spent nearly two years travelling through six continents to tell the stories of the diverse cast of characters locked in this historic struggle – from communities hit by extreme physical shifts, to business leaders grappling with the implications for the world economy.

Born in the UK, I've reported for the Financial Times since 2010, and was recently appointed Moral Money Editor – covering the push for a cleaner and more sustainable world economy for the award-winning Moral Money platform and across the wider FT. I started my career in Johannesburg, where I joined the FT to cover Southern Africa. After a stint as a corporate reporter in London I spent seven years in Asia, heading the FT bureaux in Seoul and then Mumbai.
