About Gecko

The name:

I’m sure we’ve all had that fantasy of opening a bar or a café; the romantic notion of starting a company from the ground up. Having studied the film industry, my daydream primarily revolved around opening a production company called The Raving Gecko… evidently, the name also works for a blog.

The site:

The purpose of this site is to discuss, explore and review video games, films, and TV shows, as well as a plethora of random tidbits from myself.

I am a gamer; always have been, always will be. I love becoming the hero, the adventurer or the Herald, amongst other things, in a world where real life is pretty linear.

In games, the possibilities are endless; technology holds the power to bring those dreams into our reality. And to be honest, I could talk about them for days.

About me:

Unsure of what to study at the end of my school years, I stumbled into Film as I chose to focus my studies on something that I enjoyed. For the duration of my Bachelor and Masters degrees, I’ve dabbled in screenwriting, film-making, cultural studies, and national cinema but that is where my limited experience in the field ends.

I’m a researcher at heart and so I’m currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Media and Communications… focusing on… you guessed it, games!
