About Me

Having a great passion for the creation of software and games development for the last twenty years, I am now the lead Software Engineer and Director of Idea Cabin, a small software development and game development company.

Although we are a new business, properly starting in early 2017 when the business was pitched to the Virgin group and was quickly awarded support and funding. We then branched out further and soon found ourselves being mentored from a former head of Sega while working with Universities around Europe for student placements and freelance alumnum.

Fast forward a few months and we created long lasting business partnerships with some big names such as Valve (the good people behind Steam). As of mid 2018, we have over fifty thousand players of our games worldwide, across over fifty countries.

For the business software realm, we have delivered cutting edge business applications which can be seen below.
