Claire's Personal Ramblings & Experiments

Claire Blackshaw

I’m a queer Creative Programmer, with a side dish of design and consultancy, and a passion for research and artistic applications of technology. I work as a Programmer at Media Molecule. Now looking for a new adventure in VR!. Love living in London. When I'm not programming, playing games, roleplaying, learning, or reading, you can typically find me skating or streaming on Twitch.
