Welcome to my blog!
I am a software engineer/tools developer/game developer in cold and rainy Manchester, UK.
I will post my latest projects and occasional products of hackathons here.

TLDRify , the reddit bot for summarising reddit submissions and comments , has been live for a week now.It's had some fun interactions with the reddit community and generally not been TOO much of a nuisance. Lots of helpful output in the logs allowed me to tweak how the bot worked and try to make it behave more helpfully. 2015-01-25 15:22:37,790 INFO Starting new HTTPS connection (1): ssl.reddit.com

GRAViTRON was my first foray into minimalist game design and was my Ludum Dare 26 entry.

I released it on multiple platforms including Web browser through Kongregate , Windows , OSX, Linux and Android.
