Videos

I've been into Video Production and Editing for years, a hobby which I started utilising in 2013 when I created my first YouTube channel. It's had over 4 million views and 17 thousand subscribers, and content has spanned from gameplay commentaries to programming tutorials.

I also occasionally make 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, software, videos, websites, logos etc... (...I'm just indecisive about my speciality)

My go-to languages are C#, JS, and Python, but can work with all sorts. I've used Unity for game development since 2016 and participated in a few game jams since. I've done a bit of cybersec too, winning a CyberDiscovery UK event in 2018 and enjoying various CTF games.
