Videos

I've been into Video Production and Editing for as long as I can remember. From 2013-2017, I maintained a gaming channel on YouTube, which gained over 4 million views and 17 thousand subscribers. I've also made a few programming tutorials, & 3D animations with Blender - usually for video intros and audio visualisers.

Here's a showcase of my personal favourites:

About Me

I'm a computer science student from the UK, currently studying at the University of Oxford. I love making all sorts of technical and creative things with computers, such as games, webapps, libraries, videos, music, glitch art etc. (with varying degrees of success.)

My go-to languages are JS, Python and C#, but have worked with all sorts. I've used Unity for game development since 2016 and participated in a few game jams since. Outside of games I have lots of full-stack software engineering experience, with particular interest in Security & web scripting.
