12 months or so in CG work, 20 odd years of traditional art.

If you could make any game you wanted, what'd it be?

A third person action-adventure based on Doctor Who. It's a well known and liked property with lots of room for interesting art and gameplay.

What are a few of your favourite games?

I prefer vintage Lucasarts stuff like Dark Forces, Jedi Knight and TIE Fighter, although I do like Half Life as well. On the Network, I like Tribes, UT, Counter Strike and Quake. I also love mid-to-late 80's coin-ops like Midnight Resistance, Strider, Rolling Thunder and Ghouls & Ghosts.

What do you usually do outside of work? (Extra-curricular activities?)

Generally non-computer related stuff. I like mountain biking, beach stuff, swimming, dancing, having a quiet drink (or even a loud one) and general physical stuff. I don't do chat rooms or net surf unless I need to find something.

I draw, paint, take photographs and build models, generally of movie vehicles/ships and characters.

X-Men. By far the most intelligent movie adaptation of a comic series.

Is there anything worthwhile on TV?

I like to watch Cop shows like The Bill and Wildside, as well as British and Australian comedies like Red Dwarf and The Games. I like wildlife Documentaries as well. I cant stand Buffy, Angel, Friends or any program with a laugh track and lines like 'Well Duh!'

What kind of music do you listen to?

All sorts. I prefer movie soundtracks and Australian Rock. The only things That I wont listen to are post-Beatles Lennon, anything that sounds like someone puking into a tin bucket or anyone that finds it impossible to refer to women as anything other than Ho's or Bitches.

The Finn Brothers, Jeff Buckley, Harry Connick, Danny Elfman, Annie Lennox.
