On assignment in Nairobi, November 2018

I’ve been covering the technology industry for more than a decade. In 2015 I moved from London to the San Francisco Bay Area to become the BBC’s Silicon Valley correspondent, covering all the defining stories involving Big Tech. In early 2020 I joined the Financial Times where I now cover stories about Amazon, ecommerce and the gig economy. Now and then I’ll dip out of my day-to-day beat to write opinion or cover other major breaking news events in the region.
