Ed began his career in journalism at The Independent. In 2007, he won the Press Gazette British Young Journalist of the Year Award. In 2010, he won both the Amnesty International Media Award and the One World Media Award for “Congo: The Horror” - an investigation for GQ into Britain's arms-length complicity in war crimes in the DRC.
In 2011, he won the Amnesty International Media Award for “The Lost Boys” – a report for GQ on the growing problem of jihadist recruitment on the Kenyan/Somali border. He has also recently been nominated for a Foreign Press Association Media Award for another GQ article, about the painful aftermath of the longest tennis match in history, between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut.
He lives in London with his wife.
