'What excites me is the fact that all of the creative media: Film, Music, TV, etc, and Interactive Technology, ultimately feed into each other. I'm particularly attracted by their potential synergies, productively developing the links between these fields and exploring opportunity together with those alive to the possibilities of an increasing integration.'
