After achieving a Ph.D. in biochemistry at Liverpool University,
Danny began his career as a journalist by covering the civil war in the
former Yugoslavia. Subsequently he was awarded a coveted bursary from The
Independent to study journalism at City University, and thereafter
became a staff journalist on the paper. After two years he left to
pursue freelance work and a career as a writer.
Danny currently writes
news, features and opinion pieces for the Daily Mail and
several other national newspapers, specializing in science, health,
animal rights, the environment and terrorism. He is also a commentator
on these issues for the BBC World Service and for Radio Four and Five.
Recently, Danny made an undercover documentary on the rail industry for
BBC1. It received hugely positive reviews and created a wave of media
and political interest. He lives in London and Bristol, adopts stray cats, and goes
ballooning and gliding whenever Britain's
dismal climate allows.
