The Interaction Consortium

Chief Executive Officer, 2009–2018

IC Lockup

The IC has been creating best-in-class interactive technology for the cultural, educational and non-profit sectors (and a few carefully-selected commercial clients) since I helped begin it in 2008.

At IC my team and I consulted on websites, collection interfaces, APIs, and other digital things. We helped build and launch experimental innovation startups for Graeme Wood (of Wotif) and Bendigo Bank, and community organisations Robots & Dinosaurs (a Sydney maker space) and the Sydney Awesome Foundation.

I am also proud to have been a founding member of the Django Code of Conduct Committee, promoting diversity and inclusion in the Django open source community.

Australian Centre for the Moving Image

Chief Technology Officer, 2018–2020

Constellation

As CTO, I led a multi-million-dollar step change in ACMI's already advanced use of technology in its exhibition-making and audience experience design. I architected XOS, an integrated content toolset and internet-of-things ecosystem, which gives life to The Lens, a physical/online hybrid device given to ACMI's visitors.

Along the way I managed a team of creative technologists, oversaw ACMI's DevOps transformation, helped develop technology procurement strategies and corporate and research partnerships. All that good stuff.

Cardiomorphologies

For my Doctoral thesis, titled A Supportive Methodology and Technology for Creating Interactive Art, I carried out a study of Artist-Technologist collaborations, focussing on how technology design can become more supportive of creative cognition and interdisciplinary collaboration. As part of my research I collaborated on several internationally-exhibited and peer-reviewed interactive art installations.
