Code Monkey

Biography

Game programmer and code monkey, living in Inverkeithing, Scotland. Currently working for Frontier Developments.

In my spare time I like to go walking, as Scotland boasts some amazing walking and climbing routes.

I also enjoy digging into cross-platform development, the nitty gritty engine solutions game teams don’t want to have to deal with.
