My passion and interest has always been located in the cross section between technology and art.  I was a founder member of Area10 in Peckham London, an independent experimental art space that saw thousands of people through its doors until its closure in 2010. I have collaborated on many projects with leading artists producing the electronic elements as well as writing digital music scores for installations.
