Richard was Technical Director of Sony's 25+ million selling SingStar franchise. A founder member of the project, he led the programming team from research and prototyping through to production, and oversaw the transition to PlayStation®3, which added innovative store and community features. With SingStar now evolving as a free-to-play service, he continues to define technical strategy for the franchise. More widely, he uses his experience to advocate for social gaming networks.

He now works for independent VR studio Dream Reality Interactive.
