I produce a wide range of visual media, including animation, illustration and 3D content. I have worked with emerging web and mobile technologies, IPTV, virtual reality applications and augmented reality platforms. I design and develop concepts through scenario development, user journeys and prototyping. I use pen and paper too.
As well as a creative practitioner, I am an experienced production manager. I was the project director for Participate
, a three year research project which investigated multi-platform audience participation in online campaigns and events. Partners included BT
and Microsoft Research
. I managed a successful relationship between BT and Nottingham University's Mixed Reality Lab
, exploring location-based technologies, virtual reality applications, and multi-platform user experiences. I worked with the artists Langlands & Bell
and Montserrat Soto
along with curators Futurecity
to create networked art installations for BT's international Connected World Art Series, of which Plunged In a Stream
was shortlisted for a British Council, Arts & Business International Award in 2005. I have collaborated with artists Blast Theory
on cutting edge mobile experiences, including the 2003 BAFTA nominated game Uncle Roy All Around You
. Early in my career I worked closely with Illuminations
to produce pioneering online TV community experiences for the BBC, Channel 4 and Sky, including The Mirror
, winner of a Royal Television Society Educational Television Award for Multimedia in 1997.
I am the co-author of HCI papers in the fields of user experience design and computer graphics. I have taken part in conference panels, run workshops and presented at conferences and events. I've been a guest lecturer at UK universities.
