About

Biography

I’m a composer, music producer and writer based in Sydney. Mainly I’ve had some success DJ’ing. Some of my creative work is detailed below on this page.

 

Since 2019 I have worked with City People as a researcher and analyst on a range of placemaking, arts and cultural planning and evaluation projects. This role inspired a career shift out of full-time creative work and I am now studying again at the University of Sydney in a BA/BAdvStudies majoring in Data Science and Sociology (while continuing part-time with City People and other collaborators). I am particularly interested in the use of data in cultural and creative research, evaluation and decision-making. You might ask what that even means or involves? One example is the kind of work conducted by Echo Nest that underpins Spotify’s musical analysis of songs. In my own research it has involved the use of spatial data to map arts and cultural activity and the distribution of infrastructure and resources (such as spaces and venues) with Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Eventually I hope to share some projects and insights via the blog on this website and you can follow me on this strange pivot and journey into data (or just check out new music and writing, which I will continue to post!).
