A view of Neko-Towers, where all the magic happens!
Liam Conroy was born in Liverpool, U.K. and is an experienced developer of 15 years. Having worked in the U.K. games industry for several years as a game designer (Guitar Hero IV/V, Split/Second), Liam came to Japan 9 years ago and rode the smartphone boom and setup as a freelance developer.
In recent years his interests have moved into technologies that bridge the virtual and real divide, AR and game-assisted learning being of particular interest.
Liam joined forces with Owen Bennett early 2017 and Nekologic was born. Nekologic likes to look at things differently, inquisitively and with eternal curiosity.
Liam is fluent in Japanese, likes to plays drums and enjoys snowboarding and spending time with his rescue-cat Ada Lovelace, who probably comes from another dimension.
Owen Bennett has been programming for over 30 years, professionally for nearly 20, and has worked on everything from banner ads to mobile games to multi year enterprise applications. After graduating from art school, he trained as a professional cocktail bartender before finding work as a software developer. He lived and worked in Brighton for a decade, then took a year off in the Yucatan with his family, eating chilaquiles and swimming in underwater caves, before settling in Japan two years ago. He joined forces with Liam in Kyoto shortly after arrival and brings his cool-calm experience and tea-drinking skills to the neko-ship. He speaks 4 languages, 3 of them very badly.
