Presenter / Producer New York City

Freelance reporter/journalist New York City.

It all started in my parents garden shed when I was about eleven. With a wonky video camera and some lamps taken from the house, I got to work building my own TV studio! Hollywood, move over! In my homemade studio, I would host talent shows, deliver breaking news from the neighborhood and run my media empire!

From that young age I was hooked, and over the years I worked in various radio and TV stations eventually ending up as a reporter on the Irish national broadcaster's flagship TODAY Show.

Today, I live in New York where I work mainly for the BBC World Service, traveling the world covering fascinating human interest stories. I return to Ireland regularly where I still work with the TODAY show and other primetime programmes like NATIONWIDE.

Someday, I hope to return to the shed and build a new studio. Work in progress.
