I’m Michael ‘Bench’ Debevec, a Melbourne-based creative jack-of-all-trades and video-game enthusiast.
I’ve been described as a “walking pile of assets” when it comes to anything to do with design or media.
Over the past 7 years I’ve worked professionally in a range of roles including…
- Digital & Print Design
- Web Design & Programming
- Flash Development
- Game Programming
- Visual Effects, Motion Graphics & Rotoscoping
- Camera Operation & other Live Broadcast roles
For the past 5 years I’ve been involved in Australia’s video gaming community, in that time doing everything from playing competitively, managing teams and organisations; to moderating what was some of Australia’s largest video game communities; helping run some of Australia’s biggest competitive events; and having accumulated over 100 hours of radio airtime hosting a gaming internet radio show.
Amongst all these activities I review video games and write articles for community sites as well as other event coverage and articles on the industries I’m involved in.
