Jamie was born in Canada and brought up in Hong Kong. In 1975 he moved to England. There he met Eamon Bloomfield and they collaborated on the game Lemming and Mini-Motocross. Jamie is a talented artist as well as his love of game design. I last saw him in the mid 80's and he told me he was working on a game about gyroscopic robots and another, initially called 'Search for the Yeti'.
