Katie Collins

I'm a proud member of the CNET UK team, and in my spare time, a keen amateur explorer.

I mostly write about tech and travel, but I've also reviewed tween pop albums for BBC Newsround and covered Somali pirate attacks for Reuters in East Africa.

Previous adventures have taken me to Brussels where I worked for the European Parliament, Newcastle where I studied English Literature and Indonesia where I slept on the deck of a tug boat for a week.

Favourite activities include skiing, browsing markets, rereading favourite childhood books, examining maps and cooing over animal gifs.

You should also know I consider fancy cheese to be something of a specialist subject, and I'm a dab hand with a soldering iron.
