Sam Martin, Head of Technology
Sam fell in love with lighting as he nurtured Enlighten from its conception. In a previous relationship with computational geometry he developed the navigation system behind Lionhead's Black & White 2. There was also a fling with Lionhead's early core tech team, and he doesn't forget the good old times he had with Intrepid and Kuju London.
Dr Graham Hazel, Head of Development
A Cambridge native, Graham is a dab hand with a long pole and a flat-bottomed boat - but gets confused by hills. With many qualifications in hard sums and years of middleware experience, he's occasionally a good source of technical information... but is much more reliable when it comes to local restaurants, pubs and beer festivals.
Dr Michael Balzer, Technical Director North America
Michael joined Geomerics from University of Konstanz, Germany, where he conducted research into visualisation and computer graphics. After finishing his doctoral degree he decided to work in a company where he could apply his knowledge in an area he was committed to. Being a passionate gamer since his youth, Geomerics was the perfect match.
