With my dad being a tailor & my big brother studying interior design I was fully surrounded by creativity. At secondary school dived straight into my crafty/art lessons. DT was all me, I couldn’t get enough of those classes. Deffo found a serious passion for 3D making within them years. It was a bit tough though I felt the creative side of school wasn’t shown much love or as a serious life career which had me double thinking if it was worth carrying on….but I stuck to my guns. At college I studied an Art & design course, this allowed me to explore my options & led me to meeting Max & Tay. For uni I ventured down south to Bournemouth to study Modelmaking, this was a dope course which exposed me to serious levels of hand making skills and knowledge which has been useful for so many different attributes. With an array of skills, when returning back to london I was greeted with the opportunity to start a gaming company with the boys. An opportunity I wasn’t going to miss & that is where my Orthors journey began.

Develop is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
Develop is a really great way to network, it’s also great for going to talks and finding that little tip that you didn’t know before and thinking – oh I’ll bring that back to the team!
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
