I'm a journalist and consultant specialising in the videogame industry. I've been writing about the business of games for over 15 years, and I founded one of the leading trade publications in the market, GamesIndustry.biz, over a decade ago. I was editor there for almost five years, and still write weekly editorial columns for the site eleven years later - that's a lot of columns. I've also written about the games business for GAMESbrief, Eurogamer, VG247 and British newspaper The Times, as well as appearing to discuss the industry on BBC TV and radio, CNN, Sky News and others.
Originally from Ireland, I now live in Tokyo after a decade and a half in London. I've tried to quit World of Warcraft a dozen times but keep crawling back, and was once banned from playing Mario Kart DS by my flatmates after a particularly explosive outburst of blue shell motivated swearing.
