Videogames


Writer, lead writer, director, speech designer, narrative designer, narrative producer, narrative director, story consultant, script editor, motion capture director, camera director, voice director, story producer, storyliner, or story editor - whatever your narrative needs, I have the experience to help you.

To date, I have worked on everything from AAA to small studio mobile titles, including Prince of Persia, Shadow of the Beast, Lego City: Undercover, Risen, Harry Potter, Fable Legends and Need for Speed .

In 2009, I won the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain Award for videogames writing.


Narrative Design

From budgeting and pipeline to story structure and design solutions, I can help find the best way to tell your story enhancing you game design and staying in budget.

See case studies.

Writing

As a dedicated games writer, I understand the unique challenges of interactivity. With thousands of lines written and published, whether you need two words, or half a million, spoken dialogue or punchy text, I can help you make each word count.

See case studies.

Direction

Guiding actors to get the best from their skills in the tight confines of a game budget can be tricky. I am used to working with and alongside audio teams to make this investment count.
