A multidisciplinary schemer and malcontent.

I go by many names (artist, producer, designer, technologist) depending on the needs of those I work with, but feel closest aligned to Rosalie Schweiker’s ‘More mince, less sausage‘ take on the messiness that can be developing new ideas, collectively producing work, and the deliberate non-authoring of work.

I was previously an Innovation and Community Producer at the Disruptive Media Learning Lab, Coventry University. My work at the Lab focused on driving new approaches to teaching and learning, including the ethical application of technologies to support open education, interdisciplinary learning, digital making, and the development of digital fluency.

Elsewhere I am an artist with a background in community arts and socially engaged practices.
