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 utilise 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 have completed 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 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 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).

I have managed a self-created video game website, GrownGaming, for the past three years, regularly contributing well-written and engaging articles, editing contributing writer’s posts, promoting on social media, and identifying opportunities to maximise audience growth.  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.

In addition to writing and editing articles for GrownGaming, I have also written for Twinfinite, and am actively seeking new writing opportunities.

Web Development

I’d love to work with you on your next website.  I combine my knowledge of HTML, CSS, and Javascript with off-the-shelf designs, to create stunning bespoke websites that won’t break the bank.  I can also assist with hosting.

In an effort to continue developing my portfolio, I am competitively priced.  You will still receive an exceptional website that meets your requirements, but you’ll save money.
