Ian Collen has been working as a journalist and writer for more than 20 years. After cutting his teeth in a radio station newsroom, he moved into print, working on a variety of magazines including Essential Home Cinema back when 5.1 was considered a luxury.
The majority of his magazine life was spent in videogames, writing for and editing a number of titles, primarily XBM, 360 GAMER, ONE GAMER, PLAY GAMER and the innovative custom-made digital title GAMER Interactive. Most recently he was editor of Drone Magazine - the clue is very much in the title on that one.
Now working as a freelance writer, Ian is still spending far too much time playing games and considering it 'research', while also trying to follow the latest developments in drone technology and regulation. He is not fun at parties.
