Hi, I’m Nick!

I work as an AI Engineer on Fable at Playground Games in Leamington Spa, England. Before that, I worked on Anno 1800 at Ubisoft Mainz in Germany and did a degree in games.

I'm in the games industry because I love using smoke and mirrors to create believable game AI that tricks players into thinking that there's more going on :)
