Prior to my music studies, I was on the path of a Mechanical Engineer, taking A levels in Maths (Mechanics), Physics, Computer Science, Music, and Film Studies. During my time at Sixth Form, I did work experience at Lionsgate UK as a Social Media Assistant, and at Ford UK.
My love for games always extended past playing. I was particularly enamoured with Counter-Strike: Source. Throughout the time I played this game, I also made my own maps, experimenting with my friends. I had similar experiences, with Portal 2, Oblivion, Skyrim, CS:GO, and Fallout. Whenever I wanted something extra in the game, I would make it myself.
During the final stages of my degree at Hull, I began to learn basic coding, experimenting with Unity, and some web applications. It was at this point that I caught the programming bug and decided to combine this with my love of games, applying to study at BUAS (NHTV at the time). In the interim period, I had a job working with the database of a jewellery shop chain, Artico. I also spent some time developing the iOS counterpart of an app they had in development.
