My name’s Doug Bolton, and I’m a 22 year old writer.
I’m originally from Darlington, but escaped to do an English BA at The University of Liverpool in 2011. Betraying my Northern roots entirely, I moved to London in September 2014, to do an MA in Interactive Journalism at City University. I started working at The Independent as a casual shift reporter towards the end of my degree, and was hired after I handed in my last piece of coursework. Later I became a technology and science reporter at the paper, and left in May 2016 to move to Gothenburg, Sweden, to pursue new challenges.
