Before joining Open Lab, I spent several years designing live games, escape rooms, and team building exercises utilising custom-built electronics and software. Prior to that, I studied Physics at Durham University.
I’m passionate about using technology to engage with marginalised groups, the responsible use of data, and the power of open source devices and software. The world is becoming increasingly data-rich and interconnected, and I believe it is our collective responsibility to manage this transitional period in order to secure a better world for future generations.
I specialise in portable, durable microelectronics designed to be easy to understand, operate, hack, remix and maintain for people without an extensive technical background.
I have designed and tested technological solutions ranging from automated radiation monitors, through feature-rich puzzles designed to build teamwork and communication skills, to a password-protected rotary phone. I relish the opportunity to bring this experience to bear in identifying the right solution for the problem at hand.
