About Me

Ever since my first contact with a C64 almost 25 years ago I'm hooked on games. Not content with just playing them, some friends & myself started developing games on our own and selling them on the schoolyard.

After finishing university I went on to become a web developer, surprisingly winning some awards along the way. In recent years I decided to get back to my gaming roots and co-founded Platogo - Play together online.

I currently enjoy working with Rails, Unity & Flash.
