About me

becca-faceHi, I’m Becca. I’m a freelance writer specialising in consumer technology, the science behind health and fitness and the future. Over the years I’ve also written about movies, comic books, chocolate factories and pretty much anything else you can think of.

I have bylines at/in all kinds of publications, including Wired UK, The Guardian, The Sunday Times, Gizmodo, Tech Radar, Wareable and many more.

I enjoy writing, but I also have a lot of experience in taking on senior roles at publications to manage global editorial teams, define publishing strategy and ensure all content production ties back into core business goals. I’ve worked as the Editor of Gawker-owned Lifehacker UK, the Editor-in-Chief and Publisher at consumer tech website Shiny Shiny, as well as an International Content Editor at the (now defunct) global trending news site MSN Now.
