Currently working on Sea of Thieves as a Junior Engineer.

Playground Games

Associate Engineer

For my University Placement, I worked on creating and maintaining internal toolsets for Playground Games on the Fable project.
I was a part of the internal tools team that was responsible for maintaining and creating all of our tools
While working on these toolsets I developed knowledge about C# and WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) to improve the tools for the content creators.
Throughout my time working on Fable I worked with content creators to improve the tools that they would be using every day, this involved talking to them about the workflows that they were using, implementing better ways around tasks and fixing bugs that are preventing them from working on their work.
While updating/creating features these would have to be documented to allow for other people to use the features correctly after they had been implemented.

Light Game

College Game Jam

Light game was my first experience of making a full prototype in unreal in under 48 hours.
It was a round-based survival game where you had to defend again the dark enemies with your light axe.
You could use the credits that you acquired throughout the game by killing the enemies to upgrade your skills
We even threw in a fire turret for good measure just in case you couldn't kill them.
This was a team game jam so my job was to program the game and "stick" the parts together that the artist(s) had made.
This came first place in my college Game Jam.

December 2017


College Game Jam

This was a remake of a GameJam that I made within college. It was a 2d 1v1 local multiplayer arena fighter.
This was a team game jam so my job was to program the game and "stick" the parts together that the artist(s) had made.
The game took multiple controller inputs and assigned them to the correct player which allowed them to play.
This came second place in my college Game Jam.

September 2016 – September 2019

Banbury and Bicester College

Level 3 | Games Development and Coding
Level 2 | Information Technology

Here I learnt a lot of the fundamentals of making a game and what makes them good.
Within college I learnt a lot of the fundamentals of games development including asset creation using 3DS Max, animations, basics of scripting using construct 2 and sound creation.
A lot of this course was learning about how things worked not how to use them.

September 2013 – Present

Personal projects - Garry's Mod

This was my kickstart into the games industry.
Creating custom content for servers with the main language being Lua taught me a lot about the fundamentals of coding and optimisation.
Some of the content even being viewed by thousands of people really solidified that I wanted to join the games industry as a career.
