This year I reached 20 years working in the games industry. I’ve been a game-making enthusiast from an early age… starting by programming simple games on my ZX Spectrum +2 and selling them to friends at school, and I got my first industry job at the famous Bullfrog Productions after being recognised for mods and levels created for the original Quake. I’ve had roles in game design and production management at companies like Electronic Arts, Gameloft, PlayStation and Climax before starting at Jagex as a Lead Designer in 2011. At Jagex I joined RuneScape and led the team as Executive Producer from 2012-2014 and then as VP Studios from 2014-2016. In early 2017 I was appointed CEO to lead the company in the new Third Age of Jagex with its vision to be the Home of Living Games. I remain an active high-level RuneScape player, I’m a big fan of MMOs and RPGs across all platforms. Outside of games I enjoys cycling and MMA (spectating only!).
