I am an artist/producer/DJ, and a Lecturer currently working in the School of Fine Art, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee.

My work mainly deals with aspects of the human experience: these include identity, memory, philosophy, religion, behaviour and language. All of these are explored in a continued personal search for meaning, usually through satire, patterns, and humour. Looking at these concepts, I find an infinite source of ideas to subvert, deconstruct and reassemble with my own personal slant.

I am also interested in technology , in the inter-relationships of sound and image, through exploring the media of sound art, film and music production.
Editions and multiple art, records/DJ culture, film, posters, books, new media technology , ‘fake’ products, collage, design, street art, text, graphic novels and comic strips all continue to influence and feature in my creative practice. In many ways, my work becomes a sort of artistic ‘mirror’ of contemporary culture, albeit one in which elements take on altered shapes and blended perspectives.
