I've been playing video games for as long as I can remember. From the moment I first played Pokemon on my Nintendo Gameboy Color, I was hooked. Then, when I got a copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare I discovered the beginnings of a thriving gaming community forming on YouTube. Today, that gaming community is a billion dollar per year industry, and I'm proud of the role I've played in its formation.
Despite going to University in the UK for Law, upon graduating I realized I had no passion for the subject. I knew I wanted to be in Esports full time - it had been my passion for years, but my geographical position in the UK had always limited me to remote work. So, in 2019 I moved to Texas to work with Infinite Esports & Entertainment. One year later, I was asked to move to Los Angeles to be the Senior Designer at Immortals Gaming Club.
During the near decade I have been involved with gaming and esports, I've had the privilege of working alongside top tier individuals and organizations. Most notably - OpTic Gaming. I was first recruited to the ranks as a Junior Designer in 2016, and since have worked carefully to curate the brand identity through various ups and downs. During this time, I've designed and marketed an enormous range of projects. I have carefully developed and refined brands for individuals and organizations across the gaming scene. I worked with partners to wrap cars, design controllers and market products. I've conceptualized and designed a range of lifestyle products including merchandise, apparel and team jerseys, including working directly with manufacturers to ensure top-tier quality. Our team was responsible for marketing and producing sold-out live events, and I've probably designed every type of social graphic you can imagine.
I consider myself deeply entrenched in the gaming and lifestyle community, having amassed over sixty four thousand followers on Twitter. I am extremely fortunate to have worked with so many great organizations and individuals in the near decade I have been working in this industry. It's been a great time so far, and I'm excited to see where gaming will be in the future.
