In a previous life McChrystal wrote about asset management in the Middle East. A history and politics graduate from the north of Ireland, he now focuses his efforts a little closer to home. When he's not knee-deep in journalism McChrystal fancies himself as a bit of a globetrotter. In the summer of 2014 he completed his second US road trip, spanning the east coast, but Americans will be glad to know he'll be giving them a break for a few years before returning. McChrystal is a music geek and proud parent of a dwarf rabbit named Dylan.
