Giles and I set up Talespinners together and his writing was key to our success. He'll doggedly dive deep into a story to find the emotional core, even if it's non-obvious, and then will do everything he can to reflect that in the characters and dialogue. He acts as a champion for narrative depth in a game, and will make sure that every word has a layer of polish and nuance. He isn't afraid to make practical changes to a story that will enhance the whole game experience. And what's more, he's a thoroughly nice chap! I'd recommend working with him.
Partner and Founder of Talespinners
I've been lucky enough to work with Giles on several games now and every single one has been an absolute joy.
In our current world of stock 'strong independent female' characters the people he creates are just that: real people, and that makes his work really stand out. Working on a project with him feels like being with family, not just going into the booth to record a job. He's also one of the nicest, kindest people I've met in the industry (which is really saying something!).

The short time that Giles and I worked together at Guerrilla Games was a pleasure, I found him to be an utmost professional, effortlessly approachable and always eager to collaborate.
He always brings a positive energy and is happy and excited to take on any work that comes up while putting his all into it.
Giles also has a sharp wit and manages to bring solid commonwealth humour to any room you place him in which is always a positive in my book.
