Full Biography

I've been programming games for about 20 years.  I started programming on the ZX81 and my newest platform is iPad.  In the meantime I've worked on more than one continent, for big name studios and little places, lead, project management, technical design,  troubleshooting, contracting, consulting and now self-employed.  I specialise in graphics, tools and interaction design.

So it's no surprise I'm was number one in the Game Programming category for many years, the site's first Game Programming Guru. But Game Programming isn't an active area of the site. It's becoming increasingly difficult to find a question to answer and get any points. This site appears to get the questions that people did not solve on Stack Overflow. Questions about obscure APIs and complex problems that the asker wants a simple answer for.

I guess there are plenty of people answering the company coders about databases and MS languages. That was always the sites focus and I guess it will continue along those lines. I do still answer if a question comes up that I find particularly interesting but that's quite rare now.
