After starting out in journalism and publishing, I got interested in digital cultures in the 90s whilst researching a PhD in film and critical theory at the University of Sussex. I then worked for Jake Eberts, co-founder of Goldcrest Films, and was on the Board of Cinenova, the women's independent film distributor, for many years. In 1996, I set up Opengender, an early open access academic repository and became active in Free/Libre software advocacy with Technology & Social Action and SocialSource. This led to promoting women in technology with the Eclectic Tech Carnival and in 2011 I co-founded Flossie, an event bringing together women working in open access, open data, digital arts and creative industries. After working for the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists, I founded Fossbox CIC in 2009 offering consultancy and Drupal-based collaborative applications. I'm a published academic researcher and also carry out research in partnership with Universities and for clients, including the City of London and the British Film Institute along with occasional freelance journalism for various publications including Linux Format.
