Matt Davis, the reporter who came to New Orleans in 2010 and freelanced for Gambit before taking a permanent position with The Lens, is moving back to England to be closer to family after spending six years as a reporter in the States, first in Portland, Ore. and then in New Orleans.

His memorable pieces for Gambit included chronicling the state of New Orleans Recreation Department facilities, interviewing Spike Lee and profiling the proprietors of a Gulf Coast tattoo shop affected by the BP oil disaster. At The Lens, he's been dogged in his reporting on Orleans Parish Prison, particularly Sheriff Marlin Gusman ... and somewhere in there, he found time to co-write a guidebook to New Orleans.

Not bad for less than two years in town. Good luck back in London, Matt.
