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.
