I’m Gideon Lichfield. I was made in London in 1971. Since June 2012 I’ve worked as global news editor at Quartz. For the previous 16 years I worked at The Economist, as a science writer, correspondent in Mexico City, Moscow and… oh, you know what, it’s all here.
What’s Quartz? Here, let me Google that for you.
What does a global news editor do? Right now, I hire people.
