Over a course of my studies, I have made interactive games and written essays that focused on the potential of narrative and gameplay. Especially on the field of Serious Games, which has a possitive potential in the fields of education, training and campaigning, in mixing message with immersion.
If I'm not programming or working on some game idea, chances are I might be thinking of some story or project instead, as I also have a mild interest in writing and audio.
Also, I edit doodle stuff, for research reference.
Since childhood, I've had an on/off interest with thinking up on video-game mechanics. Ranging from combat systems to hypothetical gameplay, to the music and characters themselves.
My education truly kicked off, when I studied initially at Ayrshire College, and picked up when I continued my studies in the University of West Scotland and the Glasgow School of Art. Initially dabbing in many fields within the creative industry, before focusing on gaining the skills to help program and create playable serious games, for academic research or future development within the games industry.
A video-game tinkerer and amateur writer. Who works on various projects to learn more about programming and development, to thinking on features and subjects to develop, that could be useful within the wider community at large.
That, or writing various stories under a different handle. Specifically for National November Writing Month or so? Which might, be reflected on a Visual Novel take, if I give Ren'py a try.
Want something from me? Send me a message when my contact page works. That said, outside of writing or game development, I am also an avid gamer and board gamer, even if I'm more 'casual' on that end.
Before I forget, here. Have a face shot of myself here.
