Lewis Payne

Senior Tutor

I started my career working in game development companies such as Headstrong Games and Zoe Mode. These experiences gave me valuable industry experience and knowledge and helped me to join the world of academia. Chevron icon


Before joining the University I was employed with Headstrong Games working on House of the Dead: Overkill, Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Art Academy. Since joining the Games Design team, I have been involved with level design, 3D visualisation and e-learning game projects for the university’s business hub. I am currently undertaking research in motion capture and virtual reality, I enthusiastically share this with my students.
