Hi, 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 everything in-between.
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 taking on senior roles at publications in order 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.

Copywriting and brand consultancy
I also work as a freelance copywriter and brand consultant, helping clients tell better stories through a mixture of online copy, social media strategy and web development.
Since completing an MA in Public Relations and Marketing Strategy, I’ve worked at agencies with brands such as Sony Ericsson and First Direct and as a freelancer for clients like Conran and Company, Buddhify, Envirofone, Wiley Publishing and more.
