My name is John.  It’s great to meet you!

A little about me: I am a personable and creative writer with a passion for the video game industry.  I also have a love for web development and have a solid understanding of HTML, CSS and Javascript.

I have earned a strong following with my informal and engaging writing style, but can utilize a diverse range of tones, styles and voices to suit any project.  Informative news updates, unbiased critical reviews, thought-provoking opinion pieces – I can do it all.

I’m not just limited to writing words and code; I undertake a variety of freelance projects for a range of companies.  I have built a complex insurance quoting engine in Microsoft Excel for a broker, transcribed and analysed focus group footage for a video game company, and mixed and mastered instrumentals for independent musicians.  I love taking on new and interesting projects.

I will use my skills to deliver your projects on time and on budget.

I look forward to working with you.

I Write About Video Games

Lost for words?  Let me find the right ones for you.

I’ve been passionate about video games for what feels like my whole life.  From my introduction to gaming with the Atari 2600 Jr. to using virtual reality on my PC, it’s been one heck of a journey.  I’ve loved every blow of the cartridge, every 4-disc epic, every 100GB update (that last one was a lie).

Growing up, I always wanted to write about video games professionally but it wasn’t until I reached my 30s that I took a small step in the right direction by founding GrownGaming in 2016.  Using my passion for video games and writing combined with my knowledge of SEO, branding and marketing, GrownGaming has exceeded my expectations.  It has also reinforced my passion for writing, gaming, and writing about gaming.

Along with consistently writing and editing articles for GrownGaming, I have also written for Twinfinite and am looking for more opportunities to write about the video game industry.

Web Development

I combine my knowledge of HTML, CSS and Javascript with off-the-shelf designs to create stunning bespoke websites. I can also assist with hosting.

I have not always been a traditional web developer; I have built and sold websites, but I generally build a website, grow the brand, grow an audience then sell the website as a package.

Recently, I have started utilizing my knowledge of HTML, CSS and Javascript to take off-the-shelf designs and modifying them to create stunning bespoke websites for clients.

I am keen to continue developing my portfolio and as a result, I am very competitively priced.  You will still receive an exceptional website that meets your requirements, but you’ll save money in the process.  That’s a win!
