Spent five years at Sequel Group building and maintaining a wide range of internal and public sites and apps for a wide range of high profile global brands.
Between my 2nd and 3rd year at university I had an industrial year which I spent with BBC News Specials. While at the BBC I built a wide range of features and interactive content for the BBC News website. Working closely with journalists and designers to tight deadlines.
Still a work in progress.
For my final year dissertation I built a location-aware multiplater real time stratergy game. The core concept revoloved around the users location being used to position the player within the virtual world. They could then only control their units within a given range of that location. This forced players to move around the real world to access and unlock new places.
