Hi, I’m Katie
Since 2008 I’ve worked in the games industry. In 2014 I co-founded Triangular Pixels, a game studio based in Bude, Cornwall, UK.
I love to experiment with new technology to see how it can create entirely new gameplay experiences for players. I believe in using games design and technology for good in the likes of education and health. My non-dev talents include talks, panels, workshops, mentoring and consultancy.
Some other random facts about me – I studied Physics and Space Research (Rocket Science!) at university along with Medical Imaging, Economics, Business and Entrepreneurship modules. I’m Dyslexic and a new mother.
Get in touch if you would like me to work with you, consult on your project or business, do a talk for your event, or a press interview.
Triangular Pixels – Creative Director & Co-Founder
Leading a studio, my work involves design and development, marketing, promotion, business development, HR, production and planning. We work in Unity3D, create games and Unity tools, and currently focus on VR and AR. Triangular Pixels has done a good number of projects and have won a few awards!
BGI – Advisory Board Member
The BGI is a national charity for games culture, skills, diversity and sustainability. Their goal is to advance the education of the public about the art, science, history and technology of digital games.
On the board of the BGI I ensure that micro studios and disabled players and developers are represented. I help preserve and promote the culture around video games by seeking out opportunities for preservation for the National Videogame Museum.
Cornwall Games – Director
Cornwall Games CIC is a community of Cornwall based games developers and businesses which I help drive. They aim to support and highlight the talent of local developers, demonstrate the services and games produced by local businesses, and export Cornish culture to the rest of the UK and worldwide. They also wish to promote games and related industry within Cornwall.
VRDevs Slack – Moderator
I help run the VRDevs Slack – a large online group of over 1000 VR and AR developers all over the world that was established back in 2015. We have a range of experienced developers, publishers and manufactures representatives all sharing and working together.
Councillor for Bude-Stratton Town Council
Publicly elected during the May 2021 election. I’m looking to modernise Bude-Stratton Town Council with fully public issue tracking – using tools and techniques from working in large teams and on complicated projects in the games industry. I’m currently Lead Councillor for Transport and Connectivity, and for Economic Development.

I used to be a Brownie and a Girl Guide, and was a Patrol Leader for each. Girls were not allowed in the Scouts back then!
I used to play field hockey at a National level, in goal and was captain of my team. I won a lot of player of the year awards during that time. Had to stop due to the damage on my knees!
I was president of the Video Games Society at university – and the first woman to do so! I would actively take part in the Guild of Students student council.
I’m a member of Bude Canoe Club, have been on their committee and still help out when I can.
My hobbies are graphics design, gardening, DIY, body boarding and mountain biking.
