Dirk is an accomplished Web Developer with a strong background in marketing, designing and developing software and web applications. He has worked at large companies, such as Crimsonwing, Ixaris, Uniblue and Amaya iGaming and has been involved with high-end clients and products, including TomTom, Weetabix, and Entropay.
While his professional experience is web related, his true passion lies in video games. Making video games that is!
Dirk attained a BSc in Creative Computing with the specific purpose to gain skills required to work in the video gaming industry. Earlier this year he released a Mobile and Tablet game, called MooFo. His passion in video games has led to starting-up an Indie Game Development Studio, Gloom Design
, to develop fun and polished games. Gloom Design has also collaborated with local game studios, Pixie Software and 5¼ Games, to create the first official Malta Video Game Studio Association.
Dirk runs a popular website, IndieMeetup.com
