Guest Lecture at University of Lincoln
In March of 2017 I returned to Lincoln, to the course I studied, Audio Production, and gave a lecture about game audio, and my experiences working in games. I was inspired myself by the visiting lecturers we had during the course, so I tried my best to deliver an interesting and helpful talk to the students.
GAN Talk 08/04/2017
In April of 2017, I gave another talk at Game Audio North, for our second annual talks event. I spoke about breaking into games, working in sound design and shared some of my ideas regarding applying for junior sound design jobs.

In 2016 I gave a talk at Game Audio North on my spacestation demo level in UE4. I talked about my process for creating foley, recording footsteps, recording VO and capturing underwater recordings. You can watch the talk in its entirety above.
Getting Started in Game Audio
In 2016 I wrote a guest post on my university course's blog, entitled 'Getting Started in Game Audio'. The post was intended to offer some direction to students that were interested in game audio, and didn't know where to start.
Other Cool Stuff
During EGXRezzed 2016 I pulled together some of my game audio friends for a mini meetup/pint. We managed to get a turn out of 20+ people from all over the UK.
