TL Uglow ('Tea') is the creative director of Google's Creative Lab in Sydney. She works with cultural and creative organisations around the world exploring the space between technology and the arts and what can happen where they intersect.

Tea has a history in the arts, a love of literature, and a problem with staying focussed. She speaks graphics geek, a bit of web‑dev, some Python, a touch of digital strategy, remedial project management, and really bad French. Her likes include physical/digital, pen and ink, and carefully organised chaos.

At the moment the "interests" list contains: augmented audio, digital books, proximity tech, non-linear storytelling and the physical web... plus a few things that are less tech-geek like uncertainty, small people and yoga.

In May 2016 she spoke at the Sydney Writers' Festival on Doubt as a creative catalyst. During the talk Tea acknowledged that she is transgender, and transitioning. The talk was made into a book, and is available as a podcast.
