Siobhan Reddy

Studio Director
Media Molecule


The future of games

Siobhan Reddy is Studio Director at Media Molecule, the band of creative minds behind the hugely successful and innovative LittleBigPlanet game franchise.

Cultivating an early fascination with fanzines, technology, pop-culture and entertainment led to her first job at Spike Wireless. Aged just 18, she relocated from native Australia to the UK, entering the games industry as Production Assistant at Perfect Entertainment on DiscWorld Noir. By 1999 she had joined Criterion Games as Producer, where she consistently shipped high quality titles including Burnout 3 and Burnout 4.

In 2006, seeking a new challenge and the opportunity to be part of a close-knit and creative team, Siobhan joined newly-founded Media Molecule, to work alongside directors Mark Healey, Alex Evans, Dave Smith, Kareem Ettouney and Chris Lee. Together, the small studio would go on to do big things, including winning dozens of awards for LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet 2, Tearaway for PS Vita and Tearaway Unfolded for PS4. Currently in the works is the hotly-anticipated Dreams for PS4.

Siobhan is gratified to have been recognised for her work with a number of accolades, which include being named one of the top 100 most powerful women in the UK by BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour and the Qantas Australian Woman of the year in the UK, both in 2013. In 2016 she was awarded the MCV Women in Games Creative Impact award.

Media Molecule are a video game development studio based in Guildford in the UK, and a proud member of Sony PlayStation Worldwide Studios. They are the creators of the multi-award winning games LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet 2, Tearaway and Tearaway Unfolded. They are currently building the next generation of Play, Create and Share for PlayStation 4: Dreams.
