I am currently part of the Co-Innovation Lab team at Capgemini, helping clients design innovative solutions and ideas.
A web developer since 2000, I also manage the Intranet for around 9000 Capgemini UK employees as part of the web team.
Since 2010 I have been writing about all things gamification. This has lead to advising several small companies, self published a book on the subject and given several international talks about it.
In the past year or so, Capgemini have utilised me as a subject matter expert and I have been part of internal projects as well as client projects, helping to win and maintain business.
Gamification has become as much of a passion of mine as games have been all my life. The potential to improve almost any warp of life using the lessons we can learn from games and psychology is truly exciting.
Mix this with a love of social media, technology, SciFi and super heroes and I could be happily described as a bit of a geek!
Before all of this, In 2006 I started a side project called Yet Another Review Site to review video games and hardware. Developed with the idea that anyone should be able to have the chance to get into reviewing, it sees thousands of monthly visitors and has several editors and reviewers helping.
