Mod Stu is a senior content developer at Jagex. He was one of the first two content developers externally hired for the MechScape project in September 2006.

From 2006 to 2012, Mod Stu developed content for MechScape and all iterations of Stellar Dawn, and rose to a senior position.

Of the content developers employed by Stellar Dawn at the time of its cancellation, only Mod Stu and Mod Liam retained their roles and moved to the RuneScape content team.

Mod Stu's first significant RuneScape update was the Fish Flingers rework in 2012, followed by a number of well-received quests.

After a restructure of the development team from waterfall methodology to agile/SCRUM teams, Mod Stu was assigned to the Funnel team in 2013-2014 and later joined the Guardians retention team for 2015-2016.

After a brief stint in the Eternals at the dawn of expansions starting January 2017, he moved to the Growth team in March 2017 to assist with the new Achievement System and Achievement Paths.

In July 2017, he joined the Ninja team.[1] In October 2017, the Growth team was again split off from the Ninja team in a team re-structure after the release of the first expansion, Menaphos.

In March 2018, Mod Stu moved to the Four Direction engagement/retention team (including Mod Jack, Mod Tomb, Mod Deg, and Mod Shogun) to assist with the Mining & Smithing rework.[2]

Mod Stu is most known for hosting the six-month-hunt for TzHaar-Ga'al-Kot after the release of The Brink of Extinction.

He is also known for having hosted a fourteen-hour livestream from Jagex HQ, which included (amongst other things) a developer commentary playthrough of The Death of Chivalry.

Mod Stu's curatorships include the TzHaar/TokHaar, a wide variety of quests (including the Camelot, enchanted key and summer quest series), white knights, black knights, fairies, centaurs, and unicorns.

Mod Stu is a member of the Lore Council.

(Once I finish up some Growth projects, like fixing the combat academy.) It'll get me back into the engagement team, though (something Joe was keen on) - so yeah, hopefully in the future after M&S."
