ABOUT: Daniel Wilkinson
I have been living in the Netherlands since 2008 but I grew up in South Africa near the coastal city of Cape Town.
I studied Biomedical Technology at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology and specialized in Hematology. After graduating I worked in this field till 2002. Around this time I started exhibiting my art at local galleries and I started a small recording studio soon after that.
While doing voice overs and graphic design for a company called Eiffel-Corp, they employed me part-time and then full-time. Within a year I was appointed the head of the design department where we worked on anything from advertising media to training products for higher education institutions around Africa.
I got married in 2005 and moved to the Netherlands in 2008. I have been learning the game development pipeline since around 2009. In 2012 I started Shakedown Media and I have been working for myself since then.
