Daniel Simpson

Daniel Simpson is a renegade foreign correspondent, and the author of A Rough Guide to the Dark Side, which recounts why he threw away his job to join Balkan gangsters.

Born in England in 1974, he read history at Cambridge then trained as a journalist with Reuters, before being hired by The New York Times. He resigned after learning that news promotes the interests of the powerful. Profits trump people and planet, whatever the costs.

To challenge that bias with sustainable alternatives, Daniel once published a fake Financial Times, depicting a world less addicted to economic growth. Its leading article was reprinted in the British Journalism Review.

His recent work focuses on yoga, which he juggles with investigative research. He lives somewhere between the UK and northern India.
