Designer. Builds physical-digital products. Discovers and maps factories in Bristol and Bath. Runs an interaction design talk chapter. Tutors on an Experience Design MA.
I'm a designer* whose work sits at the intersections of creativity, technology and business.
I strive to curate and create engaging and enjoyable experiences that utilise cutting edge technologies through an understanding of people and the way they experience their physical and digital worlds. I am a founder and director of a new innovation and product development company, Thomas Buchanan; I co-produce an interaction design talk series, This Happened Bristol; and I'm an Industry tutor for Hyper Island’s Digital Experience Design MA.
In addition to my project work, I deliver workshops, events and keynotes around the world on design and technology.
Previously, I was Senior Creative at Random International; Lead Designer at the Product Research Studio at the University of Dundee; and Producer of REACT Objects Sandbox. I am the co-founder of Fieldguide; a creative on the Being There: Humans and Robots in Public Spaces research project and a resident of the Pervasive Media Studio.
