------- ACT TWO: THE INTERESTS -------

SCENE ONE: GAMES

I enjoy making small, personal games that focus on narration and empathy.

I took part in One Game A Month for over two years, making tiny experiments that I published on itch.io, such as:

yearly, about loneliness in early adulthood

August, about moving to a new flat

Distance, where you're just driving

HORIZON, a one-way conversation

BRR, where you're listening to an old friend

---

SCENE TWO: COMMUNITY

I enjoy volunteering and organising events: I am running GameDevSoc, a game development society, for the second year, and have helped organise two editions of Hack The Burgh, a student-run hackathon.

---

SCENE THREE: SPEAKING

In 2016, I spoke at SCREENSHAKE about One Game A Month, and at Indievelopment about personal games. I also gave a workshop at IndieCade EU about Twine. In 2017, I was at AlterConf London and talked about game development as self-care, and spoke about microgames at A MAZE.

You can find the slides on SlideShare.

---

SCENE FOUR: CREATION

I make simple one-page websites such as the one you are on right now, TRASHZINE, GameDevSoc, and flwr.

I design logos, posters and flyers and take pictures, which you can find on Behance.

I like to write music, from lo-fi ukulele strumming to electronic tracks. They're all on SoundCloud.

I write a bit about games and feelings on Medium, and have a blog on which I post quarterly life updates.

---

------- ACT THREE: THE FUTURE -------

SCENE ONE: PROJECTS

I am currently working with Robin on a game about recovery and winter called Blanket.

I am also working on TRASHZINE, a collection of indie dev interviews, focused on experimental game creators.

---

SCENE TWO: EMPLOYMENT

I am available for short-term contract work starting September 2017, as well as summer internships.
