I like running

(I also like programming and making games)

Bio

Here's a funny story; I didn't study computer science at university. My skills are mostly self-taught. I actually studied sound design and only discovered an interest in programming when I generated a sine wave using C++ for one of my projects. In my final year I convinced lecturers to let me combine my sound design skills with programming to develop a binaural audio game for partially sighted players.

After graduating I was offered a software testing role with a company in Hampshire and after a few years there I progressed to a software engineering role. By day I'm a C# programmer using various web technologies; by night a budding game dev using the Unity game engine to create sweet games.

Outside of the computing world I write, run and play board games.
