Me at the Edinburgh chilli cook offThanks for visiting my web site. This is really just a place for me to post stuff about my hobbies, which are pretty much playing and making computer games.

I’ve been mad about computer games ever since I first got my hands on the old wood veneer Atari 2600 console at the age of 5. From then on my addiction only got worse as I moved on up through the Commodore 64, the Atari ST, then onto the PC, MegaDrive, Playstation, Nintendo 64 and Xbox consoles.

 

Here’s a pic of some of my all time favourite games…

Some of my all time favourite computer games

Unfortunately I don’t get much time to play games these days. With a full time job as an IT engineer, being a husband to be and father to a gorgeous wee baby boy, I’m lucky if I ever get 5 minutes to myself. So if I’m not spending what little free time I have playing games, I enjoy spending it actually trying to make them.

I’ve always messed around with half arsed attempts at little games here and there, I find it fun and a great way to improve my coding skills. Have spent some time playing around with LWJGL, got to say it’s very good and I’ve had fun with it but I’m now a total Unity fan, can’t get enough of it, just so quick and easy to get something up and running.

Anyway, here’s a pic of my beautiful home town, Edinburgh, Scotland, where I’m lucky enough to live and work.
