Short CV

Patrick graduated in 2003 from the University of Abertay Dundee where he studied Computer Games Technology. Since then he has worked at various games companies, including four years at Lionhead where he worked on Fable 2 and 3 as part of the engine team.
He has experience of working with various gaming hardware including mobile platforms as well as console and PC. His expertise covers GPU and multi-threaded programming, stereoscopic 3D and performance analysis and optimisation.

His interest in mathematics and graphical techniques is seemingly unbounded, and you’ll never see him more animated than when talking about the latest technique to pique this curiosity.

Patrick is now a part of the Developer Services group in SCEE R&D where he specialises in low-level PlayStation 4 graphics and optimisation, and has most recently been working on Project Morpheus support for developers.
