About me

Born in Newcastle (North of England) and introduced to Flash MX by my Dad at the age of 11, I was addicted to building games and learning programming. I built numerous games for Newgrounds, started companies, and managed teams of artists and programmers all before the age of 18.

I ventured into app development when I got my first Apple Mac computer at the age of 18, before that I released simple games to the Play Store.

I attended college in Gateshead (town near Newcastle) and studied an advanced computer science diploma for two years. I then moved to Loughborough University and studied computer science, and graduated with a 1st class honours in computer science.

Now I work fully remote building beautiful products, sharing open-source projects, public speaking, and writing blog posts.
