Meet The Digital Fix Team

Colin Polonowski

Owner / Publisher / Gaming and Geek:Life Interim Editor

As the publisher of The Digital Fix, I manage the day-to-day direction of all areas of the site, from the content sections right through the forums. I am also the technical lead which means I ensure everything works as expected and any software changes are coded by my own hands! I occasionally contribute to all areas, but in general leave the specific area management to the people who know what they're doing. I am the main contact point for anyone who wants to discuss advertising, licensing, syndication and anything else at a business-level.

Tom Bedford

Tom is a recent graduate from Bristol, looking to make a career out of writing about entertainment and culture. If he's not watching a film, playing a game or listening to music - don't worry! - he's probably just gone to make a cup of tea. He's never far from a screen. His favourite game is Fallout 3, and I have more hours on Mount and Blade, Total War games and everything Bethesda than I’d care to admit (unless you’re reading this, mum, in which case I spend all my time outside doing sport things!).
