About

I’m Andrew. I’m a writer and a narrative designer. I’m seeking freelancing work or a permanent role in video games.

I am a recent graduate from the University of Strathclyde with a Masters
in Creative Writing, having initially studied a joint honours degree in English and Creative Writing.

I have previously worked on Sony Online Entertainment’s MMORPG, The Matrix Online as a story writer on the Live Events Special Interest Group (LESIG). I’ve since been honing my skills through game jams and interactive fiction as I progressed through university.

I currently work for The Urban Writers, specialising in ghostwriting both fiction and non-fiction content. I’m also a freelance film and TV feature contributor at GameRant, while also writing features and reviews at gamefreaks365, an opportunity I use to hone my analytical skills.

My genre preference leans toward horror and Sci-Fi, but I’m comfortable writing in a variety of genres. I usually find myself writing about relationships, projecting self image, existentialism, media influence, mental health and masculinity.

My portfolio is available here. My Gamefreaks articles are available here and my itch.io page is here – keep an eye out for the release date announcement of my current project ‘Juror Number 12‘.
