Web Toys and Games
I've coded games and web toys for Comedy Central UK, Publicis, and Nokia.
I worked at Trinity Mirror's British Media Award-winning UsVsTh3m for more than a year, which isn't bad considering it was an experiment designed to last three months.
However, I'm not currently taking on new work in this area. Here's the Vault of Old Projects.
