WHO AM I?

DSCF1177 2 2.jpg
A Creative Technologist and Composer. 
I am a computational artist, composer, thinker and general tinkerer. I love to ideate, iterate and problem solve using a very broad skillset — including programming, physical computing, designing, fabricating, testing, debugging and above all, collaborating. I am always about creating immersive, thought-provoking experiences.
I am extremely self-motivated, organised and passionate. I have a proven track record of success in the endeavours I’ve undertaken, but I also think failure is an opportunity to learn and evolve. I strive to be an advocate for women / POC / LGBTQI folk in the male-dominated fields that I’ve existed in over the years, from music and film to tech — because diversity amongst teams means genuinely new, innovative and more meaningful work.

WHY ME?

With a decade of experience in the creative industries as a musician, film composer and multimedia artist, I recently made a move into the world of creative technology. I am a passionate environmentalist, a human rights advocate and a vegan with an interest in global food politics and sustainable fashion. I would be thrilled to utilise my creative, technical and collaborative skillset in an exciting, dynamic and feminist environment like Mod.
