History

I studied sequencing and synthesis on GUI timelines, quickly transitioned from Music Tech over to animation and web design on GUI timelines using FutureSplash2 (Futurewave) and Flash (Macromedia).

From website design and builds to mobile media consulting I left England in 2001 to come to N.America to be part of an exciting creative flash community movement, inspired by the late, great Hillman Curtis who was, and still is, an inspirational creative force in my life.  

As Executive Director of FlashinTO along with Shawn Pucknell, Founder of FlashinTO, we quickly grew FlashinTO to become the world’s largest Adobe Flash user group.
FlashinTO supported a new event called "FlashintheCan" which eventually evolved into www.FITC.ca, now a global design and technology event that originated in Toronto.

New exciting platforms and solutions now exist such as Unity, ARkit. ARCore, Processing, Open Frameworks, Touch Designer, CSS, WebGL and a multitude of frameworks and .JS languages. We now live in exciting times of Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality, while Social Media, Mobile Apps, A.I., IoT, robotics and maker culture is evolving more everyday.

I look forward to connectivity, creating more exciting solutions and creative content across all mediums and platforms.
