Hi, I'm Tomm 👋
I’m a Human Computer Interaction PhD student and casual academic at UTS with undergrad degrees in IT and Transdisciplinary Innovation (BCII). My research explores how the design of social technologies shapes the experiences of queer people.
I'm fascinated by the interactions people have with technology and by the ethical, philosophical and societal implications surrounding them. I also have interests in social innovation, complexity and data science (and visualisation).
If I'm not working/studying, I can usually be found out on the street with my camera, buried in a tech/sociology book or hacking on side projects.
At the end of 2019 I visited Perth. While I was there I explored the city, Fremantle and Rottnest Island as well as attending Perth Pride. Here are some of the photos I took along the way.
As we've entered a new year, I've been reflecting on my 2019 and decided to pen a few words about some of the highlights across my year.
Some photos from my most recent time in NZ. Mostly taken around Christchurch and the Port Hills.

I can’t remember how I got into street photography apart from a disdain for taking the same travel pictures that everyone else has taken.
