He first read microbiology at Kent University and then computer science, specialising in prokaryotic macromolecular 3D graphics, also at Kent.

His private research interests include the phytotherapy of psychedelics and the potential synergistic benefits of psychedelics in modern emersive 3D audiovisual environments.
