Hi, I’m Becca

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

For more than 11 years I’ve been writing news articles, long-form features, interviews, lists and guides all about the world of technology. I’ve written for newspapers, the Guardian, Observer and Metro; lifestyle titles like Stylist, Grazia and Lifehacker; science publications, Inverse in the US and New Scientist in the UK; and a whole bunch of tech titles, including Wired, TechRadar, Stuff, T3, Gizmodo and OneZero. I also have a regular column for The Companion about the science of science-fiction.

I enjoy falling into research rabbit holes, interviewing fascinating people at the top of their field, and tackling topics that ask pressing and fascinating questions about the future. I’ve written about the importance of giving robots of the future eyes and expressions; why imagining you’re a superhero might make you a better person; what physicists think about the multiverse we see in movies; whether we’ll all own flying cars one day soon (probably not), and why seeing the Earth from space could save the planet.

My first book, Screen Time, was published by Bonnier Books (Blink Publishing) in January 2021. It’s a guide to help people find a better balance with the technology they use every day. One reviewer called it “a love letter to tech while also setting healthy boundaries to ensure you can keep loving it,” which I think sums it up perfectly.

In other chapters of my life, I was an associate editor at Lifehacker UK, an international editor at MSN, and a publisher at Shiny Media. I also hold a very obscure (and nerdy!) Guinness World Record. Alongside an endless fascination with technology, science and the future, I have a soft spot for all things science-fiction, brutalist architecture and floating through the stars in VR.
