BIO
I’m a games artist currently based & working in Ipswich, UK. I've been working in the video games industry for 4 years. Graduated from UoS with a 1st degree in Games Design in 2014. I've been surviving as an independent developer since, jumping between freelance contracts and personal work in that time.

I was the lead artist and designer for a game called Ruya. A Tranzfuser 2016 winner, funded by UK Games Talent. It has since shipped with a feature on the AppStore, received positive reviews and won multiple awards. I’m now looking for my next project and keen on branching into studio work. My background is in flash games but I’ve been using Unity in the last few years.

I'm a skater. Which has instilled a persistent get up and try again mentality that I apply to my creative work. I often sell zines and prints up and down the country at illustration fairs with my partner Fennell. I've also been known to make poster art for DIY grindcore festivals. Some of my favourite bands at the moment are Touché Amoré, Ceremony and The Front Bottoms. One of my favourite games is Passage by Jason Rohrer.
