LM Latham

I'm a journalist and editor whose work has regularly appeared in top international publications, including the New York Times, FT, Sunday Times and Wall Street Journal.

I have a degree in literature and film.

Naturally terrified of risk but always on the hunt for a good story, I've trekked in Tierra Del Fuego, cross-country skied Norwegian plateaus and twice ridden an Olympic bobsled track.
