Welcome! I'm James, an experienced game audio professional based in Cambridgeshire, UK.


I joined Frontier Developments in 2013 as an Audio Designer and went on to enjoy 7 years in a Senior Audio Designer role. In 2021, I transitioned to my current role of Dialogue Manager, forming a dialogue team that now comprises six brilliant dialogue designers.

Over the course of a decade at Frontier, I've had the fortune of working with some incredible high-profile franchises including Jurassic World, Formula 1 and Warhammer, working with Hollywood movie talent, broadcast commentators and a plethora of amazing actors to bring our game worlds to life. I'm also incredibly proud to be the creator of Planco, a language constructed for the Planet franchise (Planet Coaster, Planet Zoo). Drop me a line and say 'Hayo!'

I was honoured to be included in Develop Magazine's '30 Under 30' in 2013, and have since contributed to the audio of several titles nominated for Best Audio from the following awards bodies: Golden Joystick, Develop, TIGA, GANG.

Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about my game audio experience.

As always, there's a person behind the professional, so here are a handful of fun facts about me!

  • I'm proud husband, father of two, rabbit-owner and casual Funko Pop! collector.

  • I'm a multi-instrumentalist and play 'cello with my all-time favourite band, Bowling For Soup, at select UK shows/festivals.

  • I volunteer as a Cub Scout leader. My scouting name is Chil, named after Kipling's The Jungle Book kite character.

  • I'm a keen football fan, Pokemon TCG beginner and - naturally - lover of games! It all started with Jurassic Park...
