UI Programmer, UI Designer, Game Designer
Hi, I’m Ben.
I grew up in the UK. I’ve worked in the video games industry in Tokyo, Paris and Vancouver. Mostly as a UI and gameplay programmer. I have experience with Unreal Engine, Unity and custom C++ engines.
I took kind of a winding route to joining the games industry: I’ve worked as a data jockey for a finance company using servers made before I was born. I’ve started and bailed on a PhD on Computational Linguistics. I’ve moved around the planet a few times.
I’ve given a few talks at the University of British Columbia on some practical user experience design suggestions for video games.
I’m currently a UI programmer at Brace Yourself Games.
