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.
How I Can Help
- Accessibility Talks & Pitching Accessibility Internally
- Inclusive Design Sprints
- Accessibility Team Structuring
- Talks to the Education Sector
- Improving games accessibility

- Mentoring and moral support for disabled & neurodiverse developers
