I'm a technologist, designer, and musician from Sydney. I'm interested in emerging technologies and their impact on human culture. I formerly worked at Google's Creative Lab.
I currently have available freelance slots. You can hire me to prototype that cool new thing you want to make, or build that website. Maybe we can explore a big thorny question about technology, where it's headed, and what you're going to do about it (workshops, ideation, prototypes & speculative design).
Subscribe to my newsletter and you'll receive my short, occasional thoughts on things like how we should be building technology that emulates the natural world (not cold glass screens).
I built a series of AI tools for writers and musicians in collaboration with Google and Uncanny Valley. We explored how AI could be a creative collaboration tool in music and language. It spawned a series of short stories featured in the Digital Writers Festival, and was presented at the 2020 ARIA Masterclass.
Semi-Conductor is an experiment in interfaces. What if you could change the feel and tempo of digital music without an interface at all, just by waving your arms like a conductor? It's been featured in the MIM Museum in Chile and experienced by over 200,000 people worldwide. Plus, it's open source.
Sounds In Space is a toolkit for developing location-based audio AR experiences. E.g. you can walk around a room with your phone, drop virtual instruments in space, then walk around while a band "plays" in the room with you. The tech has been used by dance troupes in Harlem and led to a public art exhibition at MUMA. It's freely available here.
I've also built handsome websites, a charity fintech startup, AI-powered chatbots & virtual assistants, a tattoo that turns into an augmented-reality dinosaur, electronic art installations, and a tiny website that tells you where to get a damn cheap oyster.
