Games are my art. I continue to develop and design because I have a need to create pieces and perfect my skills.
Games are the single most effective art form for illustrating concepts and feelings to the reader. When a player interacts directly with a system of your design, you can control their perception and experience of any element of that system. You don't tell them how to feel about something – you make them feel it. They don't learn how the system works by reading about it – they learn by interacting with it. Games are powerful and their applications are near-limitless. I truly believe that games can make the world a better place and that's why I make them.
If you are interested in qualifications, I am currently studying a PhD in Branching Narrative at Falmouth University while teaching into the game design course. I have an MA with Merit in Digital Games: Theory and Design from Brunel University. I also graduated from the Cardiff School of Art and Design with a 2:1 in BA (Hons.) Illustration.
If you are interested in more qualifications, I have a Certificate of Higher Education in Theoretical Physics and Applied Mathematics, I joined Mensa at the age of thirteen with an IQ of 177 and I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
