Freya is an indie game developer, musician and VR busybody. Following a BA in Creative Recording in Brighton, she has recording studio lead &/or assistant credits on a couple of albums by UK artists ranging from chart pop to avant-garde. Her narrative games work has been exhibited at multiple locations and events, including AdventureX 2018 & 2019, Wordplay 2018 & 2019, the National Videogame Museum, and London Southbank University. In 2019 she joined Limina Immersive for the launch of their VR Theatre, which she managed for 6 months alongside pop-up events, film festivals, and talks on responsible exhibition practices for VR screenings.

Freya likes to create subdued or understated work, rather than pushing a medium to its full potential for emotional devastation, and to include themes of hopefulness, comfort and LGBTQ representation. She particularly enjoys finding new uses for old technology, embracing rough edges and analogue character, and believes strongly in creating work that is financially & technologically accessible.
