Broadcaster Rome - Dublin - New York
Content Creator - Based in Rome / Dublin / NYC
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 neighbourhood 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 RTÉ, Ireland's national broadcaster. There I worked for one of the country's longest running shows, Nationwide, and the hugely popular TODAY Show.
Then, then New York started calling and I moved to the big apple where I worked with various networks like AP, the BBC, and ABC. For five years I travelled across the US covering incredible human interest stories, many of them you can see and hear on my site.
Today I'm based in Rome covering the Vatican and Pope Francis for EWTN, a global Catholic TV network and the largest religious broadcaster in the world. I also continue to produce content for the BBC World Service and RTÉ in Ireland. My reports/programmes today still lean towards human interest stories, with a focus on themes and issues around human rights, religious expression, and overcoming adversity.
Someday, I hope to return to the shed and build a new studio. Work in progress.
