Name: Rich Morgan|
D.O.B: 3rd August 1982
Location: Swansea, Wales, UK
I have a background in 2D animation, comic illustration, digital art and computer games design. I have a First class BA Degree in Creative Computer Game Design from Swansea Metropolitan University. I also have a degree in Computer Animation from the University of Teesside.
I am a lover of retro games consoles and an advocate of electronic music. I also have a soft spot for 1980s pop culture and technology. I drive a much-loved but sorely neglected 17 year old car that will be the first to benefit if my wages ever increase to allow me a little bit of disposable income.
I am currently studying an MPhil relating to game engine development, possibly moving on to a PhD pending on how successful my research is (yes, you can officially become a Doctor of Videogames).
I have worked as a concept artist and animator at two independent game studios in South Wales developing games for iOS devices. In 2010 I became a Research Associate as part of GamesLab Wales. Currently, in addition to my studies, I teach Games Design and Games History part-time at Swansea Metropolitan University.
