About me

I am an Irish filmmaker and graduate of Trinity College Dublin, where I completed a degree in History and Political Science in 2015. Since then I have been working as a freelance filmmaker and journalist, covering the migration crisis in Southern Europe for the International Organisation for Migration, as well as working in the West Africa region with numerous NGO’s. I have also worked on commercials and recently, on a feature length documentary entitled 'Fingal's Finest' as an archive editor and animator. I am currently based in London where I am working on my first feature length documentary.
