I am a British/Canadian writer and artist who works primarily with electronic text, sound and image. I currently live in London, UK.

My past projects include NRG, a bicycle-powered interactive multimedia narrative created during my time as the first Digital Writer-in-Residence at the Institute of Creative Technologies in De Montfort University, Leicester, UK; Animalamina, a collection of interactive multimedia poetry for children; and the interactive multimedia fiction series Inanimate Alice that has been incorporated into educational courses around the world. Inanimate Alice is one of several collaborations with Canadian author Kate Pullinger, including The Breathing Wall, a novel that responds to the reader’s rate of breathing; and the collaborative digital fiction Flight Paths.
