About me


Hello! I make games & run Pixie Software. In my other life, I'm a husband and a father. In my free time I enjoy learning new stuff and working with my hands: my latest pursuit is woodworking but I've yet to nail it down. Clearly I'm also bad at puns.

You can find me on Twitter and Facebook.
