In another life I was a musician and record producer with many releases on the Rising High, Rotation, Inspiral, Instinct, 2Kool, and Masters At Work labels. I composed and produced the music for the short films Shore Leave and The Dirt Inside, the Canal+ documentary La Ñ En La Araña, and a theme for Channel 5 TV.
Whilst living in London I also had a parallel career as a music technology and web design lecturer, working extensively at Community Music, Musicworks, and Hurricane. I finally became Education & Training Manager at Gateway before moving to Wales in 2003.
I am currently the Head of School of Digital Media at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. My main interests are the theory and practice of new media design: narrative, medium, music technology.
