Portfolio

Full-stack web systems engineer and recent graduate working in the games industry.

I grew up making online Flash games. Today, I’m still funnelling my creativity through technology to reach as many people as possible – throwing myself into new challenges, perpetually learning, delivering, and sharing my experiences.

Me helping a little girl program a Crumble bot.

I’m most interested building living, networked experiences, like those found in publishing and game-service-platforms. Wherever I am, I’m motivated by a desire to help others create.

I currently work with Java Spring, Node and TypeScript, with an ever expanding vocabulary of key-words and concepts filling in the gaps: from load-balanced, discoverable, continuously-integrated, oauth-secured microservice architecture, to responsive, localised, content-managed progressive-web-apps (phew!). I trust in clear, frequent communication, an agile process, and the pub after work.

Some Released Projects

A game engine from the ground-up

With some middleware and a lot of caffeine, I utilised my fledgeling knowledge of computer graphics, physics simulations and C++ to design and build a game engine and a game to run in it.
