I'm primarily a technologist?(whatever that means) basically I build apps, do "interactive" stuff for other people and make art. I'm not an academic, however I hold a graduate degree. My interest is in network theory and that uneasy relationship between art and technology in shaping perception. I enjoy theory, although it's a bit difficult to get 'round these parts since the mentality is to make make make and not think about what you're doing.
