Since founding DoubleUpGaming I have found my self enveloped within the gaming and indie community all around the world. Everyday is an interesting day – a day where I get to meet and communicate with new people, find out and inform readers about amazing new games but most importantly I get to be apart of great strides within the gaming industry. Gaming and writing is what I love to do…

Holding the position of Lead Editor, I have been opened to the great opportunity of meeting a variety of inspirations in the gaming industry  as well as trying out many of today’s leading games. While spending my days as a Maths student, DoubleUpGaming has been all the inspiration I need to continue my journey to become a games developer.

I have always had a passion for gaming and sharing ideas about them with people. While studying at college I started to see my strengths in management so why not combine this with my passion for gaming? Splash a bit of writing in there and that brings me to DoubleUpGaming where I can work with an awesome group of people to do what I love!

After meeting Daniel, the creator and founder of DoubleUpGaming in school many years ago, he graciously offered me an opportunity to be a part of this ever expanding realm that is game journalism. I find myself learning everyday with the help of our amazing team and discovered many hidden talents and hobbies.
