Start With One at Google Creative Lab

I currently lead community-driven innovation projects at Google Creative Lab. Our work typically starts by working together with one person to make something impactful with them and their community. If you have an idea for a project or would like to join one, don't hesitate to reach out.


With a background in music, coding and composition, in the early 2000's I was part of the Interactive Art scene and spent a good number of years traveling and installing/performing the work in museums, galleries and events. Funnnnn. I promised myself to create a proper archive but meanwhile here's the Sonic Wire Sculptor and Rhonda together with my good friend James Paterson (Presstube).


After many years of teaching at NYU ITP, Cooper Union and Pratt, I helped found Kitchen Table Coders and the School for Poetic Computation (not actively involved) alongside friends. I've enjoyed teaching artists to code and coders to think critically. Though I have not been actively teaching for some time now I occasionally accept guest lectures.

Friends and Family

All achievements rely on the support of family, friends, mentors, and team-mates. I've been lucky and thankful to have a fair share of them all ❤️
