About me

Hello. I’m Ken. A Senior Copywriter, Screenwriter and Filmmaker with over 15 years experience across copy, film, advertising and journalism. Working for clients like Ocado, Debenhams, Suicide Aware, Morena Morena and RED FM. I also invented Factoclock. I have written, directed and produced six short films working with talent including Fiona Shaw, Jack Reynor, Barry Keoghan, James Mather and Emmet Kirwan. I have been lucky enough to win awards in film, radio, advertising and digital. I strongly believe that the future of the industry lies in brilliant, engaging content and am excited to be a part of it. If I didn’t have a mortgage I’d write headlines for free. I’m a big football fan and volunteer at my local club. I once led a parade around Guilin, China, won bachelor of the year in my home town when I was 19 and tried to travel around the world overland in 2005. And failed but not miserably. Most importantly, I spent a year working as a labourer for a scaffolding company. A year full of mud, stairs, and very heavy steel that was mostly on my shoulder. So when a tricky brief comes my way, or a client doesn’t get my genius idea, I take a moment and think of the cattle mart in Fermoy I worked on, in the rain, with a crazy hammer-throwing scaffolder who smelled of fried eggs; and it’s not so bad.
