I started my career as an industrial model maker but after about 5 years computer-aided engineering put paid to this long-term. I then decided to study Ergonomics at Loughborough University, which led to a second career in human–computer interaction research. From there I ventured into consultancy and then back into academia lecturing in interaction design and UX (User experience) to design and computing students. I gained a PhD in interaction design in 2001 and researched into novel digital interfaces. I retired in 2018.
Since then, I have moved into digital media art by drawing on a wide range of skills I’ve picked up over the years or currently developing to produce digital art and performances. This can be in the form of photography, audio and video production, soundscapes or music production or a mixture of them all.
