My name is Catherine Woolley and I have over fourteen years of experience as a game designer. I'm currently working at Media Molecule as a Senior Designer but have previously worked at The Chinese Room, Creative Assembly and EA Bright Light. Outside of work from a games perspective I was also previously very involved with BAFTA on the games committee for eight years and I will forever be a big advocate of Game Jams.
I love to encourage young people to think about the games industry as a career path, especially through being a STEM Ambassador and with BAFTA Young Game Designers. I enjoy giving talks at events or schools to provide young people an understanding of how games can be designed, the roles of a designer, or any other topics that I'm passionate about or they'd love more information on. If you'd be interested in having me give a talk please don't hesitate to contact me.
On this website you can find a little information on the games that I have worked on professionally within a studio environment, alongside a variety of the weird and silly game jams I have worked on, the latter with supporting images and executables that you can download, or if it's made in Dreams, the name of the creation.
As well as working in a creative industry like games I endevour to be creative in as many ways possible, I'm an avid sewer who broke down a little on TV (I'm a good sewer I swear!) and I teach what I feel is a very creative exercise class in my spare time which is pole.
I like to think I spend a large portion of my time helping others because I feel it's the best way to make sure everyone is reaching their potential. Be that as a person who cares, wants to help them develop, know that they are being thought of or just as a friendly face. In my mind there are unlimited reasons towards helping others and I will always make time for people where I can, especially if I know them.
If you have any questions about my work, game jams, what I do to support the industry or have any other enquires you are welcome to contact me.
