Who am I?

image134710_mirrorI write fiction and develop work for radio, stage and screen. I make my living as videographer, editor and independent radio producer.

My work explores unique perspectives and lived experiences, enriched by a background in open education and non-profit arts organisation.

I’ve been an arts correspondent for RTE Lyric FM’s Culture File, performed improv at the Edinburgh Fringe, made short films and music videos and acted on air and screen.

I co-founded the educational non-profit Open Learning Ireland, and served on the board of directors of collaborative art centre Exchange Dublin. I’ve worked as Communications Officer for the Association of Radio Producers Ireland. I’m an active member the Writers Guild of Ireland and a former member of The Attic and A4 Sounds collective. I graduated with 1st class honours from the TCD’s Psychology undergraduate programme in 2009, and in 2017 graduated with 1st class honours from IADT’s Broadcast Production Masters.

“If many young students are not yet using modern technology to express themselves, three have done so successfully. Technolotics.com is billed as an irreverent look at technology, politics and the media by three Irish students and for a year it stood as one of the few Irish videoblogs. Technolotics is cheap and cheerful and it proves an important point. Viewers don’t need RTE-grade production values to engage with new personalities. Technolotics found an audience.”
