After a career in broadcast news and documentary making in the UK I found myself transferring my skills into game art. I became very ill in 2014 and needed to find an outlet for the pain I'm now constantly suffering from. PC gaming and the communities I discovered gave me the distraction I needed to find normality. As you might have guessed, the picture you see here isn't me. It's of Micheal Caine who played Harry Palmer in my favourite spy movie of all time, The Ipcress File. My gaming persona is Harold Palmer, a slightly less precise and absent minded version of the consummate professional you'll find in the Leigh Denton novels and films.
