I’m a filmmaker and educator, I’m interested in new technologies, our relationship to them and how they’re used in teaching and learning. The story of the twenty-first century is one where technology became either a force for good or one which led us slavishly to our doom. At least that’s what some people would have you believe.

I’m a reader of magical-surrealist fiction, I like moments in films that break the fourth wall. I’ll take paper and sticky-tape over machine-polished, I enjoy play and I’m still charmed by illusion.
Because it’s more real and can be more truthful to see the workings. In Brecht’s theatre the curtain was always partly pulled out from the wings, to always remind the audience that they were watching something constructed. I think learning requires head, hand and heart.
I have created these pages to support my studies and develop my practice.
