I would firstly like to say a huge thank you to WiG for making all this happen.

My first entry is just going to be a brief introductory post so everyone can know a little about me and how I was introduced to WiG.

My name is Catherine Woolley, I went to the University of Wales, Newportand received a 1st class honours in Computer Games Design, as Emma has previously mentioned.

I was a volunteer at WiG 2007when it was conveniently hosted at Newport, which is where I became acquainted with Emma.

For those that attended you may remember these:

I made them with my twin sister Charlotte Woolley every night before the conference, which was heaps of fun, and a real challenge at the same time.

I am currently applying for jobs in the games industry, but while I’m not doing that I’m working on an Unreal Tournament III mod called Void and a small Game Maker game called Lash La Rue on Holiday featuring Juan the duck which is a product of myself, my sister and her boyfriend. It was our entry for the Global Game Jam back in January.

Other than all that I have a huge passion for games, and hope to one day have more input on the development of them.

There should also be a WiG networking session happening at Develop, so keep your eyes peeled for more details!

My lovely facebook friend Camille sent me info on this event, it looks interesting especially with the O’Reilly links and I will certainly be attending.

Happy New Year everyone, I hope 2008 brings you everything you need.
