A little about me...
I was born and raised in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry, in the south west of Ireland.
In recent years photography has become a medium for me to escape; a way to step back and observe. It all happened by chance, spurred on by the joy of shooting images with the only camera I have - my iPhone. I haven't looked back since. My portfolio of mobile images can be found here.
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 had always played a big part in my life. From the stories told to me as a child of my grandfather and uncles 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 through college that developed into a passion for exploring the role sound can play in other forms of media.
I'm 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. Though relatively new to the field, I'm currently working on a new script for a film, which should be completed in 2015.
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.
Balcony TV Tralee has grown into a much bigger project for me in recent times, having gotten involved in the summer of 2015. Together with Cillian Garvey, we produce, record and manage the social media side of the show.
In late March 2015 I began an internship programme with an Irish startup, Octofly LTD.
Lastly and most importantly, the greatest part of my life is the wonderful friends and family I have. I wouldn't be the man I am but for their relentless support, enthusiasm, love and care. I owe them all a great deal of gratitude. I consider myself an incredibly lucky man to have them.
