Projects

Over the last few years, I've had the great opportunity to work on multiple genres and platforms, collaborating with world acclaimed publishers, like Square Enix, Lionhead and Warner Bros. Entertainment.

Many of my own projects are text based, focusing on player choice and consequence. These experiences are built using several interactive fiction programmes, such as Twine, InkleWriter, Quest and Ink scripting.

I have also written, edited and proofread several published short stories and am currently editing an upcoming science fiction novel.
