About & Interests

I am a skilled gamer across many genres, especially FPS games. I have been playing FPS games since 007 GoldenEye on the N64 but fell in love with the genre with the release of Halo: Combat Evolved.

I really enjoy recording my own content and creating redesigns to constantly improve my skills.
I am able to source my own gear - I have a 5channel SFX rig among others that I use a lot to build my own library.

I have a blog on my website where I do Game Audio / Optimisation tests, as I enjoy doing them.
I also have a full driver's license, and I drive my favourite car - a Honda Civic!


I love to work as part of a team, and enjoy winding down at the pub! Especially if Magic: The Gathering is involved!
