Ocean Odyssey

2019: Ocean Odyssey (VR Prototype)

This was a prototype that I produced as an excuse to play around with VR. The viewer enjoys an ocean-going cruise, while navigating between waypoints and encountering various sea creatures. A flavour of the prototype can be seen here or, for those suitably equipped, the game can be downloaded from Itch.io.

The Morning After

2019: The Morning After (2D Platformer)

For my first offical game release, I produced an homage to the games of the 80's: pixelated graphics, irritating music and grinding frustration - what's not to love? This 2D platformer sees your efforts to tidy up after a raucous party hampered by creatures that you accidently let through a transdimensional portal in the basement. As you do. Kill some time by playing the game on Itch.io.

Toddler Rampage

2019: Toddler Rampage (Global Game Jam 2019)

The theme of Global Game Jam 2019 was "Home". My team and I (working at the Brighton, UK site) focussed on how to maintain a peaceful homelife while caring for that most disruptive of life experiences: a toddler. With only 48 hours to develop the game, this concept was rapidly "de-scoped" into: how much stuff can a toddler destroy before the parents overload? You can enjoy a prototype version of the resulting game here.

Delfi

2017: DELFI cognitive E&P environment

Delfi is Schlumberger's next generation, cloud-based E&P platform. I was tasked with implementing a data management system for moving bulk seismic data (GB/TB/PB-scale) in and out of the cloud. This was predominantly based on Python, Angular JS and the Google Cloud. A video summarizing Delfi can be found here.

PSI

2010-2017: Prestack Seismic Interpretation (PSI)

PSI is a plugin for Schlumberger's Petrel E&P Software Platform that allows interpretation of prestack seismic data. I developed a critical component (using C# and C++/CLI) that allows data access and visualisation of GB/TB volumes. It also integrates the Petrel (subsurface visualisation) and Omega (bulk seismic processing) platforms (two of the leading software solutions in the industry). A video summarizing PSI's capabilities can be found here.

Omega

2004-2017: Omega Geophysical Processing Platform

Omega is one of the leading geophysical data processing platforms in the industry. The Omega front-end is predominantly Java, with a backend based on C++ and Fortran. I was a member of the Omega software development team for 13 years. In that time I worked on many of Omega's systems, both frontend and backend, including the porting of the system from Linux to Windows. I also developed web applications designed to support the platform, including QA systems and resource monitoring.
