Hey, you've found my website!

Welcome to my personal website. This is where I showcase various projects and demos I have worked on over the years. I have been a hobbyist developer since around 2000, and have developed a range of games, applications, tools and websites in that time. I have also worked on various enterprise level solutions as part of my university degree work.

My passion is game development and retro-gaming. I have released several titles on mobile platforms and I regularly take part in weekend game jams (game development in 48 hours). You can find links for all my games and jam entries below.

I also enjoy reading computer related literature; computer history, development team roots, software engineering principles, you name it!

48hr Game Jam Entries

This section contains all the entries I have made into various game jams. Typically, a game jam will last for 48 hours, you must work alone, the game and content must be created within the 48 hours and source code must be included in the release. I enjoy participating in the Ludum Dare events, for which you can find the rules for entry.
