You may have seen this on my Twitter feed already, but if you caught the hint on here from last week, this is the actual reveal – I’m exceptionally happy and humbled to have been included in this year’s Ensemble exhibition (along with seven incredibly talented people) for the London Games Festival.
Ensemble showcases BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic) UK video games talent and champions game developers from a broad spectrum of roles and a wide variety of backgrounds, and to be among seven other wonderful and inspiring peeps – Abubakar Salim, Adrian Hon, Catherine Unger, Elle Osili-Wood, Nida Ahmad, Nihal Tharoor and Rosemary Buahin – is a colossal honour. It’s obviously been a difficult and anxious time of late for everyone, so it’s been a blessing to have this to look forward to.

and a physical exhibition to follow.
Oh, and more secret stuff relating to this will be revealed in the coming months… just as soon as I can stop my head from spinning.
…but with so much going on, it’s been difficult to keep this site updated. So, for more frequent updates and contact, feel free to get in touch or follow me via these channels:

After three weekends of events, it’s probably come as no surprise that I need a bit of a break – so I’m fortunate enough to be off on one. I’ll try and do a quick write-up of the past couple cons when I get back, barring any sudden new events that steer me off course.
See you in a couple weeks! Try not to totally destroy this place while I’m gone…
Well, 2012 is here and I’m trying to catch up with the several big projects on my plate. Which is why this ‘Happy New Year’ is a tad delayed. Sorry.
But despite being only several weeks old, 2012 has been… Well….interesting, shall we say. I’ll get to that in the following posts. Stay tuned…
I’ll spare you the usual déjà vu jokes.
It’s been a very busy month, with a mass of ups and downs, but a full update on things is coming up soon. I’ll spare you the downs, but the ups include some nice surprise announcements, a couple of which have caught me off guard. Let’s just say some of the seeds planted from over a year ago are bearing a little bit of fruit (at last). It’s either a significant part of the journey, or… well, yet another false start. We’ll see.
So apologies on the delay, but there’ll be a mass of news coming soon enough, once I get past the huge amount of work and emails I’ve got on the pile (I owe a few of you replies, sorry about that).
Be back shortly…
