Logan Booker. Someone once told me it sounded like a cop’s name. Shame I’m not a cop!

In 2002, I was delivering pizza and putting the finishing touches on a Certificate II in IT at TAFE.

Between late 2002 to late 2006, I worked for AJB Publishing (now Haymarket Media) as a sub-editor, editorial assistant, senior writer and deputy editor. A few months before 2007, I became editor of Atomic: Maximum Power Computing, an enthusiast hardware and gaming magazine based in Sydney, NSW. That’s Australia, not, uh, the other Sydney you may have heard of.

Towards the end of 2007, I parted ways with Atomic and hit the world of freelance. From about September 2007 to August 2008, I was editor of the Australian version of Kotaku.

In September 2008, I made the move to Melbourne and started work at Tantalus Media as a game designer. Exciting? Indeed.

The end of January 2011 saw me depart Tantalus and join Firemint handling media relations – the primary motivator being a desire to reserve my game-designing abilities to work on my own projects.

Turns out public relations wasn’t the best fit for me, so in September 2011 I left Firemint to start my own indie games studio. To keep my stomach full and something roof-shaped over my head, I took up the weekend editor role for Kotaku, Lifehacker and Gizmodo Australia.
