In my spare time, when not out climbing or digging through the crates of second hand record shops, I can often be found working on my own projects. I'm a big fan of the Unreal Engine, and particularly enjoy getting stuck in and prototyping gameplay using blueprints.
I am also an external judge for the Media Design School in NZ, and recently founded Rogue Satellite Games.
