You found me. Good start ; )

Now what do you want to know about? I'm multi-talented as well as modest...

Since 2014 I have been managing Portico, an Arts & Heritage Centre in Portaferry. My team and I have transformed a crumbling old grade A-listed church into a vibrant multi-purpose venue combining tourist attraction with cultural centre. See the Portico website here. Better still, come in person and see our heritage exhibitions or come to one of our many concerts!

I have carried out a variety of projects requiring original research and formal reports for the creative industries. I completed my PhD in 2014 investigating how engaging in fiction via new media effects our realities.

As a writer, my work has been broadcast on the BBC, reached international audiences courtesy of Tourism Ireland, and been read by Stephen Fry. I  also facilitate workshops and teach scriptwriting and drama to adults.

My 18 years in the media has included producing a range of productions, from drama series for BBC Northern Ireland to innovative multimedia projects for Channel 4. I also produced the Digital Film Archive for Northern Ireland Screen and provide consultancy to other UK regions on devising similar initiatives. 

I enjoy diversity in my work and new challenges. If you have a project that requires someone with creativity and intelligence, get in touch...
