I have worked as a print journalist and producer/ director of documentary and factual programming in TV and radio.
My work has been mainly in the area of human interest, lifestyle and arts.
I have also worked as a television reporter and a magazine editor. I originally qualified as a barrister in Dublin.
I've also worked extensively in communications and publicity.
Past work runs the gamut from feature-length arts projects such as ‘Imagining Ulysses’ (Winner of Celtic Film Festival, Chicago Intercom Film Festival. Santa Monica Film Festival, shortlisted for Prix Italia and Canadian Film Board); to intimate portraits of artists such as ‘Nóirín Ní Riain – Voice at the Edge - Arts Lives’ (nominated for a Radharc Award); to social commentary focussing on the experience of a particular community, such as gay Irish people living in NYC in ‘We’re Here, We’re Queer, We’re Irish’ (winner of The New York Festival’s Social Issues Category) and Irish travellers in ‘Out of Site Out of Mind’).
