Hi, I’m Becca

I’m a London-based freelance writer, specialising in consumer technology, popular science and the future.

I write about things like the importance of giving robots eyes, whether we should upload our brains to computers, and how to give all of us non-astronauts the mind-altering experience of seeing our home planet from space.

I’ve written for titles including Metro, OneZero, Inverse, The Observer, Wired UK, Stuff, New Scientist, Gizmodo UK, T3, How it Works, All About Space, MSN, ShinyShiny, Lifehacker, Gadget, Wareable, TechRadar, BitchBuzz and many others.

My first book, Screen Time, was published by Bonnier Books in January 2021. It’s a guide to help people find a better balance with the technology they use every day.

In other chapters of my life, I was an Associate Editor of Lifehacker UK, an international editor at MSN, a publisher at Shiny Media, and for a year I worked remotely from South East Asia, moving between Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia and Indonesia and still managing to meet all of my UK deadlines.

Alongside an endless fascination with science, space and technology, I have a soft spot for science-fiction, brutalist architecture and floating through the stars in VR.

I’ve written for

Space & Future Tech

Health, Fitness, and Wearable Tech

Virtual & Augmented Reality

Pop Culture
