I’ve spent 25 years covering technology for newspapers and websites across the world. I’m old enough to remember dial-up modems and only having four TV channels to choose from. Before joining Allconnect, I was the Science and Technology Editor for The Daily Mail, and have also worked as an editor and journalist at The London Evening Standard, The Sunday Times and many other places. Originally from Wales, I now live in New York with my wife and dog (please follow @thewallybear on Instagram!). I’m obsessed with technology, pop music, dogs and gorillas (and in fact once quit my job to go and work in a gorilla sanctuary in Cameroon for six months).
My top picks
Citymapper (I’m directionally challenged)
Naim Uniti hi-res music streamer
Kylie Minogue, Carly Rae Jepsen and Alphabeat
