I began my creative journey as a musician in a number of bands and musical groups. This introduced me to the process of creative workflow - writing; arranging; performing; recording; performing.
In 2007 I found myself working on HBO’s WW2 mini-series The Pacific as a special abilites background actor. Inspired by the tentative experience in film making, I returned home to Ireland and enrolled in the Multimedia B.Sc. (Hons) at Dublin City University.
Since then, I have constantly sought to develop my visual storytelling craft through a variety of professional roles and experiences in film, broadcast, and commercial productions including: Assistant Producer; Assistant Director; Camera Department; D.I.T.; Sound Department; Assistant Editor; Stills Photographer.
I have performed post-production and promotional tasks on diverse projects including: Motion Graphics; VFX fixes; Web Design; Digital & Social Marketing.
In 2012 I studied Screen Acting and Film Directing at Filmbase under JJ Harrington. This gave me a practical understanding of the craft of acting which is essential for eliciting believable on-camera performances.
