Experience

Following a successful career as a finance professional in the TV and Film Industry, I’m now focusing on screenwriting. Working in production has made me a better smarter writer, as I have worked with producers and understand the difficulties in getting something made and the problems that arise. Growing up in Ireland, I loved story from a young age and my focus in writing is on original stories, that capitalize on Irish humour, with international appeal.

In March 21, I was selected, as one of 12 writers, to participate in Wexford Screen course, to work in a collaborative writers room environment with established and experienced Lead Writer/Series Producer and Show Runner, Paul Walker (RedRock, Call the midwife, Eastenders, River City, BBC Writers Academy ). At the end, the course will endeavour to commission four to six of the writers and their scripts to enter into development and production of a six part original anthology series based in County Wexford.

In October 2020, my project "Celebrity Stalker" was shortlisted for C21 competition.

In May 2020, my project was selected for Screen Ireland Spotlight emerging talent scheme, where I was mentored by screenwriter Mark O' Halloran. I'm currently being mentored by Yvonne Donohoe from Blinder Films
