I am a Senior Lecturer in Game Design, Programme Leader for Game Design and Production, and Creative Industries Research Theme Leader at Abertay University in Dundee, Scotland. I was previously a game development professional, and I have experience in both Game Art and Post-Production.
As an educator, I specialise in teaching visual design for games. This includes 3D modelling, 2D image creation, and development in game engines. At Abertay, my primary teaching role involves leading student team development projects.
As a researcher and practitioner my main areas of interest are gaming nostalgia, visual design for games, and character design and development. My PhD thesis centred on the design and animation of expressive game characters.
