British journalist Matt Richards’ interests lie with investigative reporting, politics, and, somewhat naturally, investigative reporting about politics. Having recently been in a country during a military coup, he has seen first hand what controlled media looks like, and believes that in-depth, independent journalism is more crucial than ever.
Coming from a policy geek background, he’s well versed in jumping into piles of information and coming out the other side with something coherent. But since converting to journalism, he has discovered a new-found love of storytelling, and particularly of feature writing.
He now wants to combine his detailed orientated nature with his passion for feature storytelling, so he can help to tell those stories that really matter.
