I set up this Video Games website to display articles that I wrote for other gaming sites, University assignments and a student newspaper/magazine. At University I studied Film & Media with Journalism and was awarded a 2.1. I have had eight years’ experience writing about games and in 2012 I was promoted to Weekend Editor of Dealspwn.com, the gaming branch of Hot UK Deals. In 2015 I was given a full-time role at the site, allowing me to quit my ‘day job’ at a Cinema.
You’ll find that I write about anything games related, including: reviews, previews, features, deals, news and interviews. If you’d like to offer any feedback, good or bad, feel free to message me or add a comment to the article.
I’ve been gaming since the Commodore 64 in the 80s, but I really fell in love with it thanks to the Sega Mega-Drive and Sonic. Nowadays, I’m all over anything PlayStation old or new. I arrived late to the Xbox 360 party but am enjoying catching up with some exclusive classics. Other formats I use include a Wii, PSP and PS Vita.
I am experienced in attending UK and international press events. In 2009 I attended press launch parties in London on the behalf of Game Hub for EA’s Battlefield 1943 and Sony’s Video Store. I also attended the Eurogamer Leeds 2009 Expo. Recent years have seen me travel on the behalf of Dealspwn to events for Homefront, Red Faction: Armageddon, Enslaved, PlayStation Access, Xperia Play, PlayStation Beta Rooms, The Gadget Show Live 2011, MCM Comic Con Manchester 2011 and 2012, Eurogamer 2011, Eurogamer 2013, Eurogamer 2014, Gamescom 2011 and Gamescom 2012.
I wrote for UCLan’s (University of Central Lancashire) magazine PR1/Pluto, for three years (2006-2009), with my final year as the Deputy Editor of the Entertainment section.
I have completed a week of self-initiated work experience at PlayStation World (PSW) magazine in April 2008 which resulted in an article and screen-grabs of mine being published in Issue 107, May 2008.
I also had this article picked up and published in Issue 01 of Pakistan’s first ever gaming magazine, Game Mode in October 2009.

A note on Affiliates and Associates
Some of my ‘Deal’ posts are also linked to affiliate partners. However, I only post about Deals that are the cheapest price I can find on the net from reliable outlets. The cheapest price is my priority regardless of whether it is with one of my affiliate partners or not. Prices are correct at time of publishing.
