Summary

Darren has been interested in video game development from an early age, having developed his own game engines for early consoles like the Amiga 500.

He has been at the University of Hull for more than 20 years after completing his studies at the University and then becoming a lecturer.

Darren was the Director of Student Experience for the School of Engineering and Computer Science until the School structure became Departments in early 2019.

Darren produced Higher Education Teaching Material for Imagination Technologies Limited, Kings Langley, UK.

The aim of the project was to design and create an entire module of teaching material on the topic of an 'Introduction to Graphics for Mobile Devices' targeted at Higher Education institutions. These materials are flexible so that most institutions could adapt them for their own needs. These materials are now published and can be used by institutions around the world.
