Define Your Players
Understanding and thinking about ‘who actually will play my game’ gives valuable focus to your development priorities.
I am an expert user researcher, specialising in building new user research teams and games user research.
I work with studios of all sizes to run playtests, and integrate user research into the game development process.
Prior to this I was a senior user researcher for PlayStation and worked on many of their top European titles, including Horizon Zero Dawn, SingStar, the LittleBigPlanet series and the PlayStation VR lineup.
