This page isn't supposed to be a big ego trip, just a bit of background info about me

Born in Chingford, East London, 1971, Chingford's claim to fames seems to extend to
Samantha Fox, Blazin' Squad and David Beckham.

An unremarkable childhood mostly spent playing computer games and playing keyboards when
I really should have been convincing girls it was a great idea to let me see them naked
So, that kind of proves, music is my life and always will be, I've always loved music since a
child and when I got my first home computer,
The SInclair ZX Spectrum, I knew that music and computers was what I wanted to spend most of my time with

From getting that computer along with a Commodore 64, Commodore Amiga,
making music with them was what I wanted to do

In 1994 I landed a job writing music for video games at Rare Ltd
I worked there until 1999, and in that time worked on the following games

  • Killer Instinct for Arcade, Super Nintendo and Gameboy
  • Killer Instinct 2 conversion for Super Nintendo although this wasn't released
  • Donkey Kong Land for Gameboy
  • Blastcorps for N64
  • GoldenEye for N64
  • Diddy Kong Racing for N64
  • Jet Force Gemini for N64
  • Perfect Dark for N64

    In 1999 I started at Free Radical Design and I'm still there today. So far I've done

  • Timesplitters for Playstation 2
  • Timesplitters 2 for Playstation 2, Gamecube and Xbox
  • An Incarnation of Timesplitters 2 for Gameboy Advance - finished, but never released
  • Second Sight for PS2, Xbox, Gamecube and PC - (what do you mean you've never heard of it!)
  • Timesplitters Future Perfect for PS2, Xbox and Gamecube
  • Currently working on Haze for PS3 There's a little IGN Blog about Haze here

    Working in video games can be extremely stressful at times, but, very satisfying
    when you've finally got a finished game in your hands
    Beats working in a bank anyway (which is what I did previously)
    which was with lovely people but not ultimately what I wanted to do.

    When I'm not working, I'll be out with friends at Industrial/EBM + Goth clubs, gigs festivals such as
    Infest which is a 3 day festival at Bradford Uni and is probably the high point of the year for me.

    Some music I like, and I'd encourage you to try too - look em up in Google or Myspace for appropriate links -
    I'm too damn lazy to find them for you

  • And One
  • Apoptygma Berzerk
  • Bauhaus
  • Combichrist
  • Covenant
  • Depeche Mode (seems silly listing such an obvious choice - but I will always have a place for them in my life)
  • Feindflug
  • Front 242
  • Front Line Assembly (in my opinion really good up to and including Hard Wired)
  • Goteki
  • Illuminia
  • Jetstream Lovers
  • Knifeladder
  • Ladytron
  • Nitzer Ebb
  • OMD - Their early albums were great
  • OVNI
  • Seize
  • Siouxsie and the Banshees
