About me

I graduated from UCLan with a first-class degree in games design and I chose to continue my education to earn a Master’s in games design.

My Master's project is about the theory of games design. I focused on my side project called What If Games, a series of documents that looked into different areas of games design such as level design, specific game mechanics and aesthetics. The goal of each What If Games document is to theorise how designers can change games and develop new ideas to push the games industry forward and break the repetitive tropes of games.
