I'm DEAL's Digital Communications Lead which means I manage and help to build this website and Community Platform, as well as leading on DEAL's online communications and social media presence.
My professional background is in game development as a programmer where I worked on everything from small indie games to much larger AAA titles. I'm interested in using play to help people explore important and complex topics.
I'm also a freelance writer covering the games industry, technology and climate change. I'm involved in the fossil fuel divestment movement as an active campaigner, combining the need for climate action with tangible steps towards a more regenerative economic system.
In 2018 I helped found the game workers branch of the IWGB - the UK's first trade union dedicated to empowering and improving the rights of workers in the games industry.
