"In the early 80s I was a manager for a large department chain store and they started to send store layouts in computer sheets. As I did not know much about computers I wanted to know more about them. So I bought a ZX81 and a few magazines with programs in them. I soon moved on to a Sinclair Spectrum as at this point I need to know more on how programs worked so I taught myself for the next year. I played a lot of video games in the arcades and read a lot about games. Soon it was time to see how good I was. So I applied for a job at Leisure Genius who published all the original Monopoly , Scrabble & Cluedo games. I managed to get the job and worked on the their games until they got bought by Virgin and I when to work for them."
