I’m a creative technologist with a focus on user engagement and interaction; utilising new and emerging technologies to create experiences with a social, moral and visually impacting ethos. Graduating with a MComp in Computer Games production and with a history of digital experimentation, I’m always keen to collaborate and join forces with those who are passionate and creative, regardless of medium.
When I’m not working at the University of Lincoln, I keep busy with freelance work and creative experiments, often involving game and transmedia principles. I’m always keen to learn new skills and teach others where possible. I often tweet and attend various networking events across the county, providing workshops and challenging concepts and ideas where suitable to create immersive pieces. I always aim to go that extra mile and enthuse others with the thrill of creation, regardless of technical skill levels. Although my background is in Games production and development I’ve tried my hands at multiple disciplines and have a keen interest in user collaborative creation and transmedia storytelling.
My skill set revolves typically around emerging new technologies such as Augmented reality, Virtual reality, Gamification and 3D storytelling with some of my pieces being featured on national radio. Recently I have taken part in the co_Lab research group crossing skills and peer learning to create materials that tackle real world issues using media solutions. Working closely with a varying team of extremely talented media practitioners and educators my aims for my involvement with the 1215.today project are simple: collaborate, create, share and inspire.
