Daniel is a highly regarded journalist with a decade of experience writing news, comment and deeper analysis features.

A few years later, the Financial Times awarded him with a bursary to study a masters in journalism.

Following the completion of his course, Daniel started working for the FT in its London office.

Daniel received his Master’s degree in journalism at the London College of Communication (funded by the Financial Times) and his Bachelor’s degree in film at the University of Kent.

Quote from Daniel
