Idleness is to the Human Mind Like Rust is to Iron

I have the regular hobbies/past times of reading and watching movies (huge Bond fan) and also some less sedentary activities such as skiing and walking. But I also have digital passions too.

I run a Christmas things to see and do site called London for Christmas, launched in 2001, the site is still doing well. I've also dabbled in 3D design, video editing and most recently attempted a simple (and I mean simple, basic even) comic strip. I'm also quite interested in gaming, although prefer old school third/first person shooters like Splinter Cell and No One Lives Forever than console gaming. As part of my masters I looked at the effect of game type and screen size on game immersion.

  • The Combined Effect of Screen Size and Game Type on Game Immersion

    This paper reports on a study to investigate the combined effect of these dimensions, in particular to determine whether a narrative-based game (believed to be more immersive) would mitigate any effect a small screen size had on game immersion.

    I've always enjoyed video editing and have created many family event videos, but this one is a little more accessible to people who are not members of my family!
