I’m a freelance journalist based in Ireland.
My work has been published in Sunday Times, The Irish Independent, The Irish Times, Irish Examiner, Irish Mirror, The Sunday Business Post, PC Live!, Business and Finance, and online at ENN.ie and Storyful.com. I’ve also done a bit of copy subediting on mainly Herald AM and the Evening Herald, as well as on the Irish Independent, and Sunday Independent.
I hold a BA honours degree in journalism from Dublin City University (DCU) and a BTEC Higher National Diploma in Media Production (Print Journalism) from Ballyfermot College of Further Education (BCFE) in West Dublin.
At BCFE, I was the editor of a non-mandatory first year magazine and went on to edit the mandatory newspaper, The Ballyfermot Post. The newspaper won the Best Small Collage Publication award at the 2008 Smedias Irish student media awards. At DCU, in my first year, I was one of two layout and design editors on The College View, and, following this, I was comment editor before leaving the paper in December 2009. At The College View, I also reported, wrote and took photographs for many of the paper’s sections.
For nearly ten years, between 2000 and 2009 I edited the longest running Irish computer games website, called Games Toaster (which a friend now runs) and I also used to edit an online music magazine called PlayRewind (now defunct).
