For the past 18 months, I have been living and working abroad, mostly in China. Prior to this, I was lucky enough to gain some experience in the games industry. Having just got back home to London, I am keen to resume work in the field I love most. At the age of 8 I was given a Gameboy and it soon became my dream to one day become an active member in the video game industry. Throughout school, I was frequently praised for my drawing skills and went on to study design at a prestigious University in London. Drawing was always my passion, but I was fully aware of the difficulties gaining work with a degree in Illustration, so I instead chose Graphic Design to increase my chances of employment post graduation. After a couple of difficult years, I found my first job in the games industry, as a producer, and would often shadow the Art Director when I could. One year later, armed with my knowledge in creating a game from start to finish, I was given the chance to intern at one of Sony's most unique games studios in the UK and had my contract extended with them until completion of the title I was working on. After achieving my childhood dream, I decided to live and work in China for one year in order to brush up on my Mandarin (my mother's side is Chinese) and at the same time reevaluate what I wanted to do with my life. During my time abroad, I came to the realisation that I never want to teach English ever again. After completing my contract with the school, I travelled for a few months before returning home to get back into the games industry. My experiences thus far have taught me that this is the field I am most passionate about and now feel ready to dedicate my life to. Games helped me through some tough times in my life and I want to give others the same release I was given whilst growing up. I realise they are not a means to an end, but I am confident that the work I produce will benefit others, even if only a small amount.
