Accessibility Work

About My Accessibility Work

I love working with the games and arts industries to make a fundamental, positive difference to the lives of disabled developers and gamers alike, and I would happily give a talk to any who ask!

I am a disabled subject matter expert with lived experience – I experience barriers with fine motor control, audio, cognition and neurology due to living with a unique cocktail of disabilities and conditions.

  • Inclusive Design Sprints
  • Accessibility Team Structuring
  • Talks to the Education Sector

Panels & Interviews


EGX Fringe 2018

Took part in the Disability in Videogames Panel – I spoke about the challenges faced as a disabled student at the time, and discussed with the other panellists, the representation available surrounding disabled people in games.

You can find an audio recording and a transcription at the Manycats blog here – thanks to Chris Goodyear for arranging the panel, and providing the audio recording and transcript!

University Mental Health Day 2018

I was part of a BBC News report on the crisis of mental health in Higher Education, and talked about how to look after your mental health while at university.
