I have four years experience of working directly with Direct 3D, HLSL, OpenGL and GLSL; a year's taught C# experience and knowledge of XNA. I am very quick to learn new software packages and have seen some of the toolset used by Blitz Games when I attended an open day for programmers in February 2009. I keep up on industry news, latest technological advances and current trends through magazine subscriptions and online news forums (such as GamaSutra and GameIndustry.Biz). I have experienced working in several business and academic environments and appreciate a professional attitude and structured work ethic and I strive to bring this to all I do.

My main gaming area are Role Playing and RTS games on the PC, puzzle and platform games on the Nintendo DS and action-adventure and racing games on the Xbox 360. With the recent addition of an iPhone, I have also started playing logic and puzzle games and cult classic games that have been rereleased (e.g. Broken Sword).

Outside of actively gaming I like to keep up on industry news, latest technological advances and current trends through magazine subscriptions and online news forums .† I enjoy finding game mods for Oblivion and Fallout 3 and creating custom builds, some with over 150 mods active.

I also practice photography and enjoy classic crime and sci-fi / fantasy novels. I love to travel and regularly attend rock festivals. Iím fascinated by steam-punk and diesel-punk and attend a society in Swansea.
