I’m a 43 year old Principal Programmer living in Cambridge, England. I worked for 5 years in finance (programming, systems analysis and database design) before moving over to games programming in April 1993.
First job in games was for Millennium Interactive Ltd, who became Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (Cambridge) in July 1997. Specialising in shared library development & hardware level programming, I stayed there until December 2000, when I left to join some friends at a start-up company called ‘Just Add Monsters Ltd.’, who now go by the name of ‘Ninja Theory Ltd.‘.
In November 2003 I was asked back to SCEE to join the Advanced Technology Group, working on software for what eventually became the PlayStation®3.
For the last 3-and-a-bit years or so I’ve been working on PlayStation®Vita, on – amongst other things – the platform graphics library (libgxm).
