Hello there! I’m a creative digital media producer and public engagement professional, based in Ireland.
The 2020 pandemic gave me this opportunity to ‘pivot’, as they say, to a new career.
When I’m not working or upskilling, you’ll find me writing, knitting or figuring out how to grow old (dis)gracefully.
Speaking of qualifications, I have a Post-Graduate Certificate in Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship from Trinity College Dublin, an MA (Hons) in Scriptwriting from the Institute of Art, Design & Technology in Dun Laoghaire, and a Diploma in Online Marketing and Digital Strategy from Griffith College Dublin. You can read more on my LinkedIn page.
As for writing, I’m a professional member of the Society of Authors and the Writers’ Guild of Ireland. My traditionally-published historical biography, ‘Petticoat Rebellion – The Anna Parnell Story‘, was released in 2009 by The Mercier Press. ‘Petticoat Rebellion’ was featured as Irish Times Book of the Day, and was selected from over 300 submissions for ‘Great Irish Book Week‘ that same year.
My quirky, short film ‘Rapunzel – The Blonde Years‘, produced through Screen Ireland’s ‘Virtual Cinema’ scheme, has had over 730,000 hits on YouTube, and has been used as an education resource in schools for discussing gender and development.
I have also been lucky enough to have been funded by both Screen Ireland and the Arts Council of Ireland, including a placement with the No Strings Productions team in the Henson Carriage in New York for the filming of the No Strings Kibing gender equality project.
Now that we’ve been introduced, why not drop me a line and we can discuss how we can work together in 2021? I’d love to hear from you.
