Biography

Focused on delivering high quality levels and creating a strong team. Particular enjoy environmental storytelling and creating interesting narrative in open world or sandbox settings.

In my spare time I mostly enjoy hiking, playing piano, playing games (mostly mmos or open world RPGs) and socialising with friends and colleagues.

I also enjoy and spend a lot of my time working on voluntary indie game development projects and keeping up to date with latest tech and game engines.
