Anything else you want to say about the kinds of projects or people or organizations you’d like to work with?
I'm particularly interested in educational games, and art/experimental games.
Games you’ve worked on ...
None so far other than 1 or 2 experiments I tried which I didn't complete due to lack of ability or clashing timetables!
What abilities would you bring to a collaboration?
I can program to various degrees in several languages: C#, Java, Python being my strongest 3, and with tuition I generally pick others up fast.

I enjoy writing creatively and do so on my own website in which I mainly blog reviews on video games, food, music, books and many other things!

I'm very comfortable with public speaking whenever that is required.
Three games you’ve played that have changed your life:
1. Final Fantasy VIII - This game blew my mind when I first played it in 2000, when I was just 10. It was the first game that made me feel like I was that character (Squall).

2. Warcraft 2 - When I was very young (5 or 6) my brothers would have friends around and LAN this game, I had never known such magic was possible outside of the console world, it opened my mind to tactical thinking in video games as well.

3. KoToR (Knights of the Old Republic) when I played in 2004, was the first game that made my jaw drop through narrative, absolutely mind blowing, the same degree of which I wouldn't experience until playing Bioshock years later.
