About me

Hi there, my name is Owen Duffy and I’m a journalist, dad and geek based in Glasgow, Scotland. My work has appeared in respected media outlets including The Guardian, BBC News, BBC Radio Scotland, VICE and Ars Technica.

I write clear, concise, conversational copy and have experience in news reporting, features and opinion. My areas of interest include cities, technology, migration, the environment and LGBT issues, particularly surrounding bisexuality. I also write a monthly column on board and card games and have extensive experience of online community management.

When I’m not working, my interests include martial arts, fitness, photography and heavy metal music. I’m also into geeky board games and run a weekly tabletop gaming group in Glasgow with my wife.
