Biography

My academic work explores language and technology with a particular emphasis on digital media. While I work firmly in contemporary narrative media, I have a strong background in traditional English literary studies (particular Romantic, Modernist, and Postmodernist literatures). I add to this an attention to reading and interaction through my analysis of the structures, modes and references to the spatial within narrative works that embody cultural values. Furthermore, I create media in a form of participatory research that demands immersion in the subject. The most obvious examples of this immersion are interaction, performance and ritual. I have worked extensively with virtual worlds, augmented reality and video games as technologically mediated spaces for interaction and story telling. As well I have composed music and sound sculpture, created installation and performance art, published zines and chapbooks, curated and promoted Indigenous art and artists, and worked with collectives and institutions where these forms of culture are promoted and gestalted. My music has been released on independent and net labels based in the USA, Australia, Sweden, Ukraine and Germany. I work heavily with social media and have over 100 videos published online with tens of thousands of views. Audio files of my sound works have been downloaded over 70, 000 times at the time of writing, from sites such as archive.org and freemusicarchive.org.
