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, why imagining you’re a superhero might make you a better person, how seeing the Earth from space could be life-changing, what physicists think about the multiverse we see in movies, why we should mount a mission to the ice giants, and whether you’ll own a flying car one day (probably not).
Over the past ten years I’ve had bylines in all kinds of titles, including Metro, OneZero, Inverse, The Observer, Insider, Wired UK, Stuff, New Scientist, Gizmodo UK, T3, How it Works, All About Space, MSN, ShinyShiny, Lifehacker, Wareable, TechRadar, and many others.
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 travelled for a year around South East Asia while (somehow) still writing every day. And 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, Arthurian legend, brutalist architecture and floating through the stars in VR.
