I am a creative technologist, founder of Vorb and Nth Screen, and researcher and producer at Tim Kindberg Consulting and matter 2 media.

I'm also an author of fiction and poetry and of the textbook Distributed Systems, Concepts and Design.

I'm based at the Pervasive Media Studio where I was recently research director. I was visiting professor of computer science at ITU in Copenhagen and the University of Bath, and a senior researcher at HP Labs, Bristol and Palo Alto.

Interests: artistic/creative applications of technology, based on my work on {urban, nomadic, ubiquitous, distributed} computing.

This site contains links to my projects, publications and other research activities.
