After a degree in design I pursued a career in museums, specialising in concepts for immersive experiences, audiovisual techniques and the crossover between art and interpretive design. 5 years ago I started a design consultancy called Bright White based in York and have worked all over the world. I hold a modest qualification in music theory but am an avid musician including surround-sound programming and digital production for the purposes of creating artistic experiences. I have championed the use of 3D computer visualisation in museum design to good effect. In the community, I represent York’s creative private sector on the panel of Illuminating York, a 5 year-old initiative to bring contemporary light-based art to York.
