“I’m most interested in joining dots, particularly as the children’s media landscape changes daily.  How can artists, musicians, scientists, historians or any other specialists use screen-based media to reach a young audience?  How can different types of technology or people with different skills collaborate, possibly in a way that they never have before, to produce something that serves a particular purpose and is relevant, meaningful and entertaining?”
