An early adopter of Internet technologies, I started building websites in the mid 90s. Back then, the web was a glorious mess of frantic Notepad-built special interest websites, X-Files Usenet groups and unregulated chatrooms. It’s come a long way since, and so have I.
Today, I can draw on a long and varied history of work in “digital”. This has included product management, content production from filmmaking to writing, user research and analysis, project evaluation and digital strategy. I have worked in broadcast, the cultural sector, edtech, healthtech, the charitable sector and beyond (see my client list, below). Some projects have been deadly serious service design or educationally inclined, whilst others have been extremely whimsical.
I have taught digital production skills of one sort or another for Syracuse University, the National Film and Television School and the Arts Marketing Association amongst others, and have written and spoken widely, especially on educational games (and in past years co-ran the very successful 1500 member strong London Educational Games meetup group, LEGup, along with its sister organisation edugameshub.com. Both since disbanded but event videos are still available on the edugameshub YouTube channel ). I am a mentor for leading Tech for Good accelerator Bethnal Green Ventures. But! I am forever learning, there is always change in this sector and I do my best to keep up with it.
So the chances are, whatever your digital project, question or training need, I will be able to help. I will be bringing my strong belief that all the best work is collaborative, user-centred, ethical, honest, open and accessible, and focussed on clear objectives.
