For my 8th birthday I really wanted a Nintendo, but my parents couldn’t afford one, so instead I used to draw Super Mario levels on sheets of connected A4 paper. On a separate page I would draw Mario (complete with a pixelated moustache), cut him out, and then ‘play’ the levels.

As soon as my parents got a computer (one of these bad boys) I started to learn how to program text games in basic, using several games programming books from Usborne (like this one).

Here’s a few things I’ve made since then.

As well making games, I’ve been credited on a few commercial titles as well, mostly for support roles.
