What do you do at Headscape?

I do the colouring in. Where are my crayons? I also beat IE6 with a stick.

What do you do when you aren’t doing that?

When I manage to get away from the laptop, I love watching interesting foreign films, drinking beer and smoking. On a good day I’ll do all three at the same time.

What has been your favourite project to work on and why?

I really enjoyed working on The Big Butterfly Count with Craig – probably because I got to design and build a nice, over complicated parallax background thingy.

Do you have a hobby or interest we should know about?

I just bought my first DSLR, so I’m learning to take photos all over again.

What is your greatest personal achievement?

I think I’m actually nocturnal. Oh, but I guess i didn’t really ‘achieve’ that… it’s always been there. Hmm, nope, I can’t think of anything else though.
