About us


working on Avoyd - programming, design, business

I'm programming the game Avoyd using Runtime Compiled C++, a technique I co-developed with industry friends; and enkiTS, my lightweight task scheduler.

An experienced game developer, I was previously Technical Lead of the Game Architecture Initiative at Intel. I've worked in the games industry in roles ranging from the R&D development manager at Crytek to head of studio at Strangelite, as well as lead programmer. An early interest in games development was sidetracked by a doctorate in Physics at Oxford University, and two post-doctoral posts as an academic researcher in experimental nonlinear pattern formation, specializing in fluid mechanics. My fondest childhood memories are of programming games in assembly on the ZX81.

working on Avoyd - testing, design, website

Whilst working with Doug on Avoyd, my main role at the moment is writing website and backend server functionality for the game. I'm also involved in testing and writing documentation for the Runtime Compiled C++ open project, and the port of presskit() to Google App Engine.

A professional software tester with a background in Engineering, I spent 12 years testing software products for the highly regulated life-science and medical industries whilst keeping a keen interest in computer games.
