Profile

I grew up locked in a small, dimly-lit room creating computer games and making things. The computer games led to a BSc in cybernetics which then led to a PhD in biomedical and neural systems engineering. The making things eventually led to my MA in interaction design at the Royal College of Art and a fascination for the science and art of creating.

My work has ranged from designing stuff for NASA and ESA to recording the sounds of human muscle; from exhibition design to creating guimp – the world’s smallest website (includes the world’s smallest versions of pong and pacman!).

PS. Claim-to-fame #8: Once, in an article in an internet magazine, Steve Strange mentioned that I was one of his favourite designers (it's a long story ;)
