James from Clones, Co Monaghan attended Largy College, Clones and progressed to Cavan Institute to study QQI Level 5 Computer Games Design.
"My name is James Brady. I am a Games Design graduate from Cavan Institute 2010. Padraig Cahill was my tutor.
I am now a professional games artist working for Rockstar Games of 'Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne' fame. I have also worked at Creative Assembly 'Total War: Warhammer' along with being featured in two 3D Artist Magazines and has world wide games press online for some game art which I created.
Since the age of 15, I knew that I wanted to have a life-long career making video games. When I graduated from secondary school, I saw Cavan Institute as the foundation or stepping stone towards making that dream come true. The support I received from the tutors helped steer me in the correct career direction. The course content taught was so relevant and appropriate.
Cavan Institute created an environment which allowed not only breathing space for personal development and growth but also provided immense support in pushing one towards their end goal.
Years down the line and I am now a video games artist at Rockstar Games."
