What did you study (at school, college or university)?
Fashion & Creative enterprise Ba Hons at Newcastle College

How did you get into technology?
My love for games began at an early age, with Paper Boy, Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, The Sims, Sim City all having a huge impact on me. When I went to study fashion at college, I was doing a top-up Ba degree on top of my FdA, and decided it wasn't for me. I had been spending hours on Minecraft rebuilding game worlds in my free time.
I decided I could make a big impact on the gaming landscape as a whole, with lots of unique ideas that no one else was producing, and so I took to training myself.
