He instigated the You Are Here wireless porject for Mute, and contributes to the East-end-net network.

He completed his BA Fine Art [Hons] Painting degree at the Slade School of Art [University College London] in 1992, where he ran an open contributions magazine called Mute. In 1991, his interest in the creative applications of technology led him to attend CalArts in Los Angeles, where he decided to relaunch Mute as a critical quarterly. Mute have staged two events exploring the critical context of technology at Tate Modern.
