Gavin is a professional technology writer with a decade of experience covering security, gaming, cryptocurrencies, Windows, and Linux, plus some diversions into copywriting for real estate, sports, and PC hardware businesses.
He has held editorial roles at MakeUseOf.com and has worked as an SEO Manager, too. Before starting life as a technology writer, Gavin worked in market research, helping Cornish businesses uncover trends and get to know their customers just a little better than before.
Gavin has a strong interest in privacy and security in the digital age. Online privacy is incredibly important, but most people appear not to care - until a security or privacy breach impacts them. He enjoys writing easy to follow guides on how regular people can boost their privacy without requiring much effort.
In his spare time, Gavin likes to play board games with his family, helping introduce a new generation to games of all types. As well as this, he plays football three times a week, enjoys running and swimming, and recently bought his first new mountain bike in a very long time.
