James Trew



 James Trew is a technology journalist originally from Bristol, UK, currently based in Spain. James began writing for music magazines in the ‘90s, before moving into a career in IT/telecoms. It wasn’t long before the two worlds merged and writing about technology, particularly in the music making world, became a full time career. Now it's more about wearables, technology in culture and the odd phone or two.
