About me
Currently seeking a job in social research, outreach and journalism. I am a Sociology graduate from Trinity College Dublin, with an MSc Politics of Conflict, Rights and Justice from SOAS, London. My current area of academic research is interested in police and political repression of arts and culture. Outside my academic work, I have worked extensively in music and events including festivals and clubs. I have experience in Artist Liaison and Stage Management Assistance, working freelance as both. In my own time, I produce forward-thinking, independent music and culture events and work as a freelance writer. I have a keen interest in culture and marketing and like to focus on celebrating intersectionality, ethics, and diversity in my work, to create a space for personal and group empowerment. I believe that music, brands and events present an under-exploited means through which to inspire a shift in how people think about the world and bring about positive social change. This belief underpins all that I strive to achieve. I am a classically trained musician with teaching experience, and DJ and produce experimental electronic music in my free time.
