Hi! You've reached my profile, and on the off chance you'll continue reading I'd like to say thank you. Before I get to the boring technical stuff I'd like to tell you a little about who I am. I was born and raised in the Rep. of Ireland. I lived in the United States. I've travelled to Asia and around Europe. I love cats (take from that what you will), philosophy (boring? I think not), photography (the REAL kind i.e. film) and bacon. That speaks for itself. Music is my seconds language and one that I can't speak, if you know what I mean. I'm interested in anything that makes me think and converse with interesting minds. Now onto the boring stuff!

I began filmmaking several years ago. I've since studied for three years and achieved a BA in Digital Film Production. I've worked with community groups at a local television station, as a production assistant at production companies, and as a freelance editor for media agencies.

I’ve worked with artists, corporations and civil services in the United Kingdom and Rep. of Ireland. As a producer I’ve supervised editing and camera teams, bringing my technical expertise to ensure quick turnarounds. I work quickly and I adapt easily. I work best with a clear plan and structure, or brief, and without supervision. I enjoy working on creative projects, events or stories that tell me something original and exciting.

I have completed internships and entry-level positions in the United Kingdom. These experiences have given me valuable and transferable skills that I would like to develop within the media sector and more importantly, have reinforced my determination to develop a career in this area.

Have a splendid day.
