Description :

Since 2001 I've supplied live video mixing (VJing) and audio-visual performances at music, film and art events and festivals including Flatpack Festival (UK), AVIT (UK), Contact Europe (Germany) and Twilight Zone (Greece). I have provided visuals for artists such as Venetian Snares, Muziq, Bentley Rhythm Ace, Layo & Bushwacker, Ozric Tentacles, Freq Nasty, Andy Wickett, Brum Creative, Frog Pocket, Sir Real, Shaolin, Swerve, Pace and Dorcha.

I've have also worked with theatre productions, art galleries and in a technician/AV/technical support role and in the past developed my own VJ video mixing software PHLUMX.
