Alex has been writing professionally for several years and came into games media through a background in copywriting and linguistics. She's written a variety of articles for several well-known websites, with bylines in Can I Play That, KeenGamer and Gameranx, to name a few. Alex is also a game writer and is part of the narrative team for Beyond Skyrim. She enjoys creating interactive fiction and designing quests and characters for games, including mods and collaborative projects.
Before working in games journalism, Alex developed years of invaluable experience as a digital creative. Skilled in art, graphic design and WordPress website design, Alex has worked with a range of consumers and businesses on digital content and design projects. Alex reconnected with gaming after stumbling into World of Warcraft some years ago. These days, she's an avid gamer who enjoys a wide variety of genres. However, she's particularly fond of RPGs and action-adventure titles with a strong narrative focus.
Alex is especially interested in exploring storytelling through gaming. She's also keen to explore how games can benefit harder-to-reach segments of society, as well as those who struggle to access them. Some of Alex's favourite games include The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Fallout 4, Life Is Strange, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Yakuza 0. The list goes on, although she'll tell you in no uncertain terms that What Remains of Edith Finch is a masterpiece.
Outside of gaming, writing and being creative, Alex enjoys staying active by playing rugby and football. These days, if you can't find her chasing after a ball in a muddy field, you'll probably find her deep into her Game Pass backlog or building a Twine game.
