Biography

Growing up I was always enamoured with stories and their ability to touch people in such a multitude of different ways. I have always loved reading and watching films, although it wasn’t until I was introduced to the world of technology and video games that I discovered a medium with the potential to create something truly fascinating. Through studying a Bachelor of Games and Interactive Environments at QUT, I hope to better educated myself on how to design video games before hopefully delving into the industry and making my mark.

The best advice I've been given is, funnily enough, that advice can only get you so far. Read reviews or journal articles, and attend seminars to better understand your field, but it's important not to change how you create and work to fit into a certain mould. You shouldn't be afraid to push against the tide and do things differently, because otherwise you'll never stand out in our ever-changing, hectic world.
