With a pedigree of AAA game development and design excellence, I have worked with world class publishers and developers at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, Capcom, Sega, Rockstar Games, Square Enix and Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment. My endeavours have earned me three BAFTA nominations for my work on L.A. Noire in the categories of Design, Debut Game and Best Game.

I have extensive expertise project managing both level and game design in strong narrative projects. As an inspirational leader I use an open and inclusive design methodology in all cross discipline liaisons. With exceptional documentation skills I believe in detail orientated approaches to problems, without losing sight of the need to be creative and flexible.

With a background in blockbuster game development, having worked on multimillion unit selling titles for more than fifteen years, I bring a wealth of game design and management experience to any team. Having spent much of my career breaking down the barriers between film and videogames to create a seamless experience for the Player, I bring a cutting edge design ethos to a genre that has a huge amount of scope for innovation.

More recently I have embraced education and training systems, working with the Academy of Interactive Entertainment to deliver the first Game Design & Production course they have ever run. I am part of the Academic Management & Compliance Team and oversea the curriculum development of the organisation.
