I have an intense passion for new technology, and love the creative process of bringing 3D environments to life. I started many years ago, creating maps for games in the early era of first-person shooter games. As the technology and fidelity of these games evolved, I had to learn new skillsets - graduating from level design, to modelling objects in 3D Studio, texturing in Photoshop and to scripting to create better interactive experiences. This led to learning more formalised programming languages, and putting together prototypes and tests of game ideas and concepts, solely for the enjoyment and experience.
Since then, I have been working on projects, both for myself and for clients/employers that will provide me with a challenge and improve my experience, skills and learning. Being faced with a problem
that I've never dealt with before, creating a solution and getting it all to work correctly is immensely satisfying to me. Several of the projects that I have worked on have involved creating applications
entirely from scratch, with no initial codebase and little to no initial assets.
I still love creating 3D environments and applications that use them, even more so now with the advent of Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies.
I always try to keep up with the latest developments in technology, especially in my favoured fields of expertise. I have a great interest in User Experience and User Interfaces (UX/UI), particularly as it pertains to VR and AR, as it brings an entirely new set of challenges. Recently, I have begun experimenting with using photogrammetry to provide environmental data, and learning about the tools and processes involved in it. My final project for my BSc this year combines these two areas of interest, where I will be investigating the creation of a user interface for a VR application that recreates well-known landmarks, in co-operation with Dartmoor National Park Authority for them to use in a mobile outreach program.
I currently reside in Devon, United Kingdom
