MAIN SKILLS

“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.” ― Osho

WEB DESIGN

Design is so much more than Aesthetics. It's more concerned with how it functions and the results that it produces.

WEB DEVELOPMENT

Writing the programming code, either from scratch or by adapting existing website software and graphics packages to meet client requirements.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Responsible for creating design solutions that have a high visual impact.

Photography

Having had an interest in photography for many years, it is an area I am very passionate about. I endeavour to capture unique moments which people can reflect back on forever.

TV Director/Producer/Researcher

Studying with The Park Studio in Dublin gave me a great passion for working in TV, especially as a Director. Working across all genres, I have worked on a single and multi camera TV set recorded as live.

Content Curator

Having been nominated/shortlisted & voted top 5 finalist for an Irish Blog Award, I have experience curating content for online platforms (in the beauty industry), dealing with PR companies & reviewing products.

PORTFOLIO

Inspiration

Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.

- Steve Jobs

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

- Albert Einstein

An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail.

- Edwin Land

Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.
