After graduating from Imperial College London, Wayne started his career in electronics in 1987, working as a consultant designing anything from switch panels to complex image processing systems to help doctors diagnose epilepsy in children. He then spent several years in the broadcast television market designing ‘in-vision’ clocks and logo generators. In 1998, he followed his dream of working for a 3D graphics company and moved his family to California and joined 3dfx as part of the team working on the Rampage graphics processor. After a year at the ray-tracing super-computer start-up Believe, he then moved to NVIDIA in 2001, where he joined the team working on the GeForce 8 series GPU. He is now working back in the UK and is part of the team designing the next generation of mobile products. To relax, Wayne spends hours outside in the freezing cold and the dead of night collecting photons from distant stars to make pretty pictures. In the daytime, he also enjoys rock climbing and photographing more typical subjects like his children, flowers and landscapes. While at college, his interest in generating fractal landscapes and planets earned him the nickname “Slartybartfast”- a handle he still uses when playing games on-line.
