Tom Regan is a writer and ex-PR with over half a decade of games industry, copy writing and entertainment journalism experience.
Having spent his formative years working in recording studios, an artist management company and as a small time music promoter, he eventually pivoted into the games industry.
What started as voluntary writing about his favourite hobby quickly blossomed into a viable career. His formative games journalism years saw Tom writing news for IGN and earning bylines for WhatCulture!, God Is A Geek, Official PlayStation Magazine and others, before he became the Tech and Gaming Editor for Baronet Entertainment’s The Metropolist.
On the side, Tom began working for renowned UK gaming events company NJ Live, assisting with the tech setup for game launches like Destiny, Call Of Duty and setting up show stopping booths at conventions like Paris Games Week and EGX.
Tom then went on to work as account executive at award winning PR agency Indigo Pearl, where he launched dozens of AAA and indie games, working on everything from Rock Band 4 to Overwatch and I Am Bread to Prison Architect.
Following his tenure at Indigo Pearl, Tom returned to journalism, writing for tech outlets Engadget and Ars Technica, as well as securing bylines at mainstream and gaming publications such as Stuff, Trusted Reviews, Red Bull, Official PlayStation Magazine, EDGE and many others. After two years of freelance journalism and offering consultancy and copy writing services, Tom was then appointed the global gaming editor for Wikia’s Fandom. He was then named one of the UK games industry’s rising stars by Gamesindustry.biz.
Three years after heading up games editorial for one of the biggest sites on the net, Tom is now returning to the world of freelance writing. He continues to use his wide range of experience and expertise to offer his services as both a pop culture critic – specialising in gaming, tech, music, TV & film – and as a copywriter and consultant to a wide range of clients.
