I am self-employed Media Consultant and journalist based in Ireland. I have been a professional journalist for most of the past 18 years, a period during which I have covered a wide range of topics and forums. I have been a local reporter with regional Irish newspapers, a business reporter with the Irish Times (1997-2000) and a Midwest Correspondent, based in Limerick, with the Irish Times (2000-2002).
During my career I have developed new journalistic abilities. I learnt new skills as a sub-editor in 2002 and applied skills as a sub-editor in Dublin between 2003 and 2005, working, variously, for the Irish Times, the Sunday Business Post and Village magazine. I have a BA in Sociology and Politics and an MPhil in International Relations.
