Biography

Currently engaged in a diverse profile: Writing user stories for FARO (3D imaging and laser scanning), researching the 3rd (online/app) edition of Best Walks in Ireland, authoring the materials for a number of training courses, and regularly delivering varied magazine features. All of which should illustrate at least a portion of my broad experience, my range of competencies and my ability to address a wide range of audiences in different environments and through differing media.

Personal interests:
As a published poet, I also perform occasionally for fun. Hobbies include anything with mountains, wind and water. From mountaineering and trekking to sailing and cruiser yacht racing; kite buggying to x-country skiing. I am an amateur naturalist and have an active interest in the natural and built environments, architecture, vernacular architecture and heritage. I am active within a number of community organizations and a former cruiser-class captain.

Café.BLOG (www.cafe.ie) and ifeck (http://www.ifeck.com) are two diverse blogs I write because I feel passionate about a getting a good cup of coffee and because I enjoy the opportunity to express my experience of technologies.

Locations:
I am currently working out of Dublin with regular working bases in Nottingham and SW France. I travel the EU/Scandinavia frequently.
