Hi! I’m Erin Louise, a mixed raced, twenty-one year old student based in London. I grew up in the Midlands in the UK with my single mother and dreamt of studying games in London, so I’m very lucky to be in the position I’m in now, on Escape Studios’ BA Game Arts course in Holborn, London.
My skills lie within writing, creative direction, production and graphic design, all of which I use now at Birdlessly, my digital platform where I am the founder, creative director and editor-in-chief. I adore writing about games on Birdlessly and plan to dedicate my 2018 to exploring games journalism.
I’m also learning game development at university as we are taught how to 3D model within Maya, texture within the Substance software and produce our scenes in UE4.
READYPLAYERSHIVER is a portmanteau of two favourite novels of mine, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. I thought it would be fitting to name my online portfolio after the catalysts for my love with games and writing.
I’m currently looking to write games features and develop our games section on Birdlessly so do contact me if you’d like to get in touch about that! Thank you!
