I am a digital artist, the Founder and Managing Director of web/mobile developer Cuttlefish, the Director of Leicester arts company Interact Digital Arts and a Visiting Researcher at the Institute of Creative Technologies at De Montfort University.
In my commercial work I am interested in social networking, mobile multimedia, collaborative computing and location-aware information systems. In my arts work I am inspired by systems theory, the nature of interactivity and creative explorations of flow and connectedness.
I have had a varied career which has seen me work in the arts, academia and commerce, and I am comfortably able to move my focus between the three.
As a researcher I have published over 20 research papers and have spoken at numerous conferences and seminars. I have an Honours Degree in Computer Studies from Loughborough University, a Masters in Digital Arts from Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London and am currently writing-up a practice-based PhD in Systems Theory and Digital Arts at De Montfort University.
