Who am I?

Most recently working at Recast, a live & On Demand streaming platform, as Esports Editor I lead all esports business strategy, handling commercial discussions, content strategy for partners, product & gamification design for the platform, and more. Recast having 60+ full time employees in their Edinburgh office and valued at $90m, I was in discussion with most of the biggest esports orgs, tournament organisers and publisher around the world.

Prior to this at Esports Scotland, my most notable project was overseeing the transformation of the company's biggest IP, the Scottish Esports League. As the companies Head of Content and Creative Director/ Co-Project manager for the league, I redesigned the visual identity fully to better reflect the long term goals of the league: going from a grassroots event to a spectacle that convinces Scottish sports teams to expand into esports.

As a result the company received proactive interest from sponsors approaching us with requests to sponsor the league and a large number of teams developed enough interest to start work on a yet unannounced project.

I had the pleasure of working with Dale at Esports Scotland where he was a beacon of positivity. In a time where the organisation was going through both large changes and large challenges, Dale kept morale high, managed difficult relationships in a professional manner and overall was great to work with. I fully recommend him for any role requiring positive energy and creativity.

As a kid, what interested me in sports the most were team’s logos. How a team looked and how cool their name was - that made me a fan or a nemesis.

I take that same perspective across all my esports work to find creative solutions that drive results. Making sure that a brand is shown how they seek to be represented and is set up for their long term goals in the industry.
