In the 1990s I established some of the earliest Internet networked art events in Australia and continued to work with streaming technologies, generative soundworks and collaborative, cross-disciplinary projects, exploring broader interpretations of screen culture and the moving image. I had also contributed to the establishment of the first national community computer network in Australia, Pegasus Networks, from 1989 and moved on to building the Pactok Pacific Island and South East Asia network for NGOs from 1992, partaking in the founding years of the Association for Progressive Communications and Interdoc-Asia Pacific.
I graduated in 2001 with a Master of Arts in Interactive Media at RMIT University. I ran the new media arts collective Toy Satellite for 10 years and was interactive media consultant and informal artist in residence at the Australian Centre of the Moving Image during its formative years. From 2005 – 2007 I was proud to have been OPEN CHANNEL’s inaugural Program Director where I continued to develop my long interest and passion for screen culture.
I am currently Secretary of the Executive Board of the Association for Progressive Communications, Producer / Digital Media Advisor for apc.au and on the founding committee of Open Spectrum Australia.
When not travelling I live with my records, books and synthesisers and… when time permits, I release my various projects (Terminal Quartet, Son of Science, Lost Time Accident) through the artist run Secession Records.
