journalist, digital producer, developer

Oh hi there

I'm Benji. I'm 28, live in London, and have a great sense of humour. I studied Modern Middle Eastern History at university before landing the jammiest job of my life – traveling the world writing for the Guardian and the New York Times. Then I ended up in house at the Guardian, writing and web producing on the Travel desk. I also made Twitter mapping service kerouapp.com and news aggregators RedditEdit and top5news.co.uk (US version here). At the moment I'm working on my first startup, while building interactive stories.

I've recetly started coding, and built this site from scratch using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Do have a look around – at my travel writing, features, and digital dabbling.
