Danny is a PhD candidate at the School of Cybernetics. Danny has 10+ years in architecture, design and construction. He has been involved in a number of high-profile projects of national and international economic significance, including the Western Sydney International Airport Program and the Western Sydney City Deals, as an Assistant Director at the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development. Danny is a passionate designer who also volunteers his time as an Assistant Lecturer at the Canberra Institute of Technology guiding students to transform their ideas from an intangible concept to a tangible reality, using computer-aided programs such as Autodesk Revit. During the 3Ai Masters, when we challenged the students to ask new questions, Danny approached sensing from the perspective of sensory deprivation, opening us up to an entirely different way of experiencing the world.
