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 loads of full-stack softeng experience.
