I was born and raised in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry, in the south west of Ireland.
In 2012, photography became a medium for me to escape from the noise; a way to step back and observe. It all happened by chance, one spurred on by the joy of shooting images with the only camera I have - my iPhone. I haven't looked back since. Recently I decided to pursue the craft more seriously.
I'm inspired by the beauty in the mundane, the subtle shapes and casts of light that can be found everywhere in daily life. I'm inspired by the landscapes around me everyday, and - most importantly - the people and faces I see everyday. Photography is the perfect medium through which I can explore all of that.
I graduated from the Institute of Technology, Tralee with a B.A. (Hons) (1st Class) in Music Technology in October 2014. Music has always played a big part in my life, from the stories told to me as a child of my grandfather and his show-band playing together, to picking up the guitar at the age of 14. It's always been a huge part of my life. That love of music spread into an all-round love for sound and the role it can play in film and television. I love the process of creating new soundscapes, songs, and sound design elements. Check out the music and audio page for more of what I do, and feel free to get in touch if you have an ideas or projects you'd like to work with me on.
I'm also a filmmaker, having co-created the short film - 'From The Inside' - with Brian O' Connor and Miriam Condon in 2013/2014, as part of our college studies. I'm currently working on a new script for a film, which should be completed in early 2015, as well as a number of other short series projects, and some promotional projects.
In recent times I have also begun to learn about design and coding. I will have new projects to share on this site in time, so be sure to keep an eye on the Journal for some behind the scenes posts and updates.
I am also interested in voluntary opportunities and have given time to helping a local youth organisation with music and photography projects, as well as through general volunteering opportunities. I believe in setting aside time for volunteering opportunities, so please don't hesitate to contact me. I'd be happy to discuss how we can work together.
The most important elements in my life are my friends and family. I wouldn't be the man I am but for their relentless support, enthusiasm and care. I owe them all a great deal of gratitude and count myself as an incredibly lucky man to have the people I have.
