CEO & Cofounder
Matt is passionate about changing finance for game and mobile studios. In his free time he loves spending time with his family and dog, Nutmeg. Matt’s favourite games are sports, hyper-casuals and Solitaire (he’s totally addicted). He currently has the edge over his 12 year old on FIFA, but probably not for long!
HEAD OF DATA
Sash has spend years on analytics for hundreds of free to play games, but he loves playing them too – his favourite right now is Epic 7. When he isn’t playing games and crunching numbers, he loves weightlifting and athletics where he is working hard to qualify for the English nationals in the shot put event.
CHIEF OF STAFF
After starting her career in marketing, Olivia has spent several years in Chief of Staff roles for tech companies. This is her first experience in the gaming world. Outside of work, Olivia is studying for an MBA. She enjoys going to the gym, trying new restaurants, and being a full-time cat mum to the world’s most demanding pet, Peggy.
Sara has worked in communications across the creative industries for 13 years. She enjoys RPGs, platformers and visual novels. She had a brief stint as an award-winning Crash Bandicoot fanfic writer. Her favourite game is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, so much so that she named her daughter after it! She likes festivals, theatre and cooking Southeast Asian food.
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT EXECUTIVE
Tom uses his business and finance knowledge to facilitate creative people and their companies. He was drawn to the creative industries because of his passion for (/religion for) the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. His favourite games include Lord of the Rings: War in the North, Battle for Middle Earth II and The Hobbit. Tom is a keen hiker and grows vegetables on an allotment.
RISK & OPERATIONS ASSOCIATE
Connor is a recent graduate of philosophy (specialising in artificial intelligence). He’s been gaming since his uncle bought a Playstation back from Hong Kong in 2000 and his favourite games include FIFA and the Uncharted series (Indiana Jones minus the hat and whip). Away from the office he’s a hockey coach, rugby enthusiast and enjoys collecting classic rock and 90s hip-hop records.
