About me

About me

I explore the efficacy of independent videogames as interactive/performative tools for understanding posthumanism and radical ecology through a post-disciplinary ‘praxis’ method, equal parts game development, media theory and contemporary philosophy.


I am interested in research exploring posthumanism, radical concepts of ecology, new materialism and particularly agential-realism, within the context of digital technology and videogames.

I have explored these ideas through a variety of different methods including philosophical enquiry, media archaeology, creative coding, game development and collaborative digital film-making.
