I occasionally dabble in games and I am always on the look out for new game making apps.

Today I have been experimenting with a text adventure game creation software called Twine, which has been a lot of fun. I have made a game called 'Dream Job' which I've been kicking around for a while now.

This is my attempt to capture the highs and lows of working your dream job.

Recently redesigned my website and updated with a new project I've been working on:


Stay tuned for more details of this one. Exhibition will be in the Nation Museum of Wales, Cardiff and feature a number of artistic responses to 3D scanned artefacts. Curated by Sarah Younan.

As some who dabbles in instrument repair and construction I was lucky enough to recently come across an old set of Irish Uilleann pipes. After much research and discussion with leading pipe experts around the world, some pieces of the pipes were traced back to the workshop of Richard O'Mealy, a Belfast based piper who was prolific from around 1900.


 O'Mealy was quite an important maker and piper, with a very distinct style, and as a 'Northerner' I was already familiar with his work. There is a video of him playing here, from the film The Devil's Rock.


 On a trip home in March I stopped over in Belfast, staying in my sister's house near the Ulster Museum. Here, I tracked down O'Mealy's old workshop, being only a few streets away.


 Nowadays, it's probably occupied with  students. Still, it was pretty exciting to track down the possible origin of my 100 year old pipes.
