He is Design Futures Lead at Arup and formerly Programme Director of Graphic Design Communication at London College of Communication, UAL and founding director of design research consultancy Strange Telemetry and a founding member of Supra Systems Studio. He is also currently just over one half of research and curatorial power-brand Haunted Machines. He is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education and Academy and is currently undertaking a PhD in Design at Goldsmiths about the intersection of computer graphics and so-called artificial intelligence through critical practice.
