I have been writing articles for myself for as long as I can remember, but last year was when I started to write for a gaming website. I try to add an element of my own personality into articles that I write and I hope that comes across when someone reads them!
I draw a lot of inspiration from journalists like David Mitchell and Charlie Brooker (who have a very similar similar opinions to myself!). Other sources of inspiration that must be mentioned have to be from the Angry Video Game Nerd and the Nostalgia Critic. I have been watching their videos for years and they seem to be from the same gaming era as myself.
So if you have some spare time on your hands, please have a read!
I have recently graduated with a masters in Digital Effects at Bournemouth University. There I have been learning many different aspects of both 3D and 2D production.
Before this I had graduated with a first class degree in Computer Science with Games Development at the University of Hull.Before I went to university I was a chef for about 6/7 years in many different restaurants. Working in restaurants taught me many life skills but unfortunately it wasn't what I wanted in my future.
After much deliberation I decided to follow a career better suited to my creativity and work towards working in the computer games industry. So with this in mind I decided to go back to college to do a National Diploma: Software Development at Truro College, which I achieved straight distinctions in. I was also asked to represent my course at the annual governors meeting to express my views and how they could improve the course in the future.
After college I decided to go to University of Hull to develop my programming skills and of course you already know the story there!
Apart from work and projects I like to spend as much time as I can surfing, exploring the world, writing, gaming and simply having a laugh! Last summer I was a 'gamesmaker' at the Olympics in London which was an experience.
