For months on end, he would throw himself into cases, hoping to uncover the truth in a bid to give families some sort of justice. But after two and a half decades of seeing horrors no human should have to see and "taking trauma home with him", he knew he had to make a change. So when the opportunity arose to help create a London crime-solving game, he knew it would be a great way to show the public the realities for officers and victim's families in this situation. He came on board with ElectricNoir on their launch of Dead Man's Phone - an immersive storytelling mobile game that puts users in the shoes of a Scotland Yard homicide detective investigating the murder of a young teenager, pushed to his death from a South London tower block in Peckham.
