Hey! I'm Derek

I'm married with children, and I like shapes and colours. My role at Dovetail involves delivering visual quality in all our software, and a typical day sees me playing software and reviewing art. I help people realise their potential.

Originally I wanted to be an architect. The games industry did not exist when I started to dream, but a friend got me interested. The biggest influence on my career has been John Constable. Games I've worked on previously include Eliminator, Die Hard Vendetta, Rogue Ops, Constantine, Pay-out Poker and Rail Simulator. I enjoy working here because of the people, and my free time consists of oil painting and long distance running.
