Videos Games is a hyper competitive, hit-driven industry, with massive competition for every role so YOU need to STAND OUT!

I've built successful teams and games at major game studios - Disney, Pokémon, Sega, THQ, King, Digital Extremes, Microsoft, WB Games, Eidos - so I know what is takes to be a top candidate and I'm here to help.

My passion, outside of developing video games, is knowledge sharing. I am the creator of successful courses including this Game Production course and Cheat Codes for Game Roles. I'm a regular guest speaker at colleges and events.
