I work on the Art & Animation desk here at Aardvark Swift, which means I get to see lots of cool art from artists all around the world and then try and find them their dream job. In my personal time, I like long walks on the beach, getting lost in new cities but mostly spending way too much time thinking about my Fantasy Football team.

How did you get into games as a hobby?
My first memory of gaming was playing my dad’s Super Nintendo and Sega Megadrive. I was the only kid on the street to have both so all my friends would come round to play Street Fighter II and Streets of Rage, which sometimes lead to scrapping between us! I first became obsessed with gaming when I got a GameBoy colour for Christmas, we’d all be out on the street until dark playing Pokemon Yellow. We’ll not talk about my Football Manager addiction – 3 years clean!
What’s your career background?
I have been in recruitment for almost 6 years now. I’ve done Railway engineering recruitment, Industrial/HGV and now Gaming recruitment. Before recruitment I briefly taught English in Thailand and I worked at a Summer Camp in America while studying at Leeds Beckett University.
