About Noel Ransome

Noel Ransome has been a writer for Urbanology since October 2009 specializing in tech features. He describes himself as a tech nerd without an ounce of shame because technology and passion are one in the same for him. While he’s had the pleasure of attending and covering almost every geek event known to Toronto, it’s his general love for writing that has enabled him to grow beyond the coverage of a single beat and land his new role as Associate Editor of the publication. What’s next for the soon to be Journalism graduate? Wherever the words takes him.
