I am a designer, programmer and maker that works in the intersection of physical and digital mediums employing technology for creative expression.
My interest is in research and development of platforms, interfaces and products that enable interactivity between users an interfaces.
I employ a ‘thinking by making’ philosophy to my work combining my creative and technical skills to explore concepts through coding and prototyping. I enjoy being involved in all stages of a project from creative ideation, research, interaction design and technical development.
In some projects I have explored digital / physical interaction, working with products and installations to create unique experiences with data and code – Project Jacquard, Project Bloks, Assembly of Youth, Pachube.
In other projects I have explored the Internet as a medium for platforms that enable collaboration to create unique forms of expression – Exquisite Clock, Colors Online, Dev Art, Happy Party, Kaiser Chiefs – Make your Own Album, Jam With Chrome.
