About Me

My work experience involves theatre producing, directing & playwriting, game design, game writing and game development. I have mostly enjoyed working in creative environments, such as theatre, game development and film. However, I’m always open to new challenges and won’t rule anything out. Recently, I have started a university degree in computer science and a side job as a game designer.
