I'm a director who loves nothing better than working with great creative and technical teams to do engaging work. I write words, music, and code. As an ever-emerging artist I'm always exploring new forms of expression and storytelling. I also draw a mean stick figure.
As Creative Director at Mod Productions, recent work includes the on-board experience for Action Stations - Australian National Maritime Museum (launching Nov 2015), Power of 1 - Old Parliament House and ACO VIRTUAL an immersive interactive video experience of the Australian Chamber Orchestra on tour since June 2013.
I am a founder of Mod Productions (2010-present) a creative studio that makes immersive experiences in the space between films and games.
I created the Rack&Pin Software-as-a-Service platform used for production management and show control on award-winning film, TV and interactive productions.
I ran UK consultancy thequality.com from 1993 to 2008.
I founded "remixable film" production company, MOD Films (2004-2009) with a NESTA Invention award.
As an enterprise architect and executive I've delivered ambitious cross-platform digital productions up to US$150m in several countries.
My technology experience spans film, TV, games, internet, government, finance, retail and knowledge management.
Translating between business, creative and technical teams is what I do. From building the first website in NSW in 1993 through to immersive interactive video and real-time graphics today, I use technology as a creative tool.

In late 2015 I will be presenting a case study on Rack&Pin called "The Internet of (Showbiz) Things" at SIGGRAPH Asia in Kobe and giving talks around ACO VIRTUAL during its run in Hong Kong.
