Bryan Betts

Hi, I'm Bryan Betts, and I'm Principal Analyst with industry research firm Freeform Dynamics, where my areas of coverage include data storage, mobility, cloud, security, collaboration and open-source.

Until 2016, I was a freelance journalist specialising in business, engineering and information technology. You may have seen my work in Engineering & Technology, The Register or Computer Weekly, for example.

I'm also a beer writer - I have written on this topic for The Guardian and CAMRA's What's Brewing, among others, and I have my own blog, BeerViking.

I've taken part in radio programmes for BBC World Service, BBC7 and BFBS. I have TV experience from other areas of life, this includes appearances on BBC1, BBC2, Channel4, History Channel, Bravo, Discovery Channel and UKTV Food.

I am a member of both the NUJ and the British Guild of Beer Writers, and I'm NCTJ-trained (National Council for the Training of Journalists), although I never got around to collecting the bit of paper to prove it. My degrees (a BSc and a Masters in Engineering Science) are from Warwick University. I also hold a City & Guilds 7407 stage 1 qualification in teaching adults in further education.
