Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I am a father and a husband.  

 

I was born and raised in ireland.  I have had a varied educational and work career.  After leaving school I studied accountancy first and quickly swapped that for Marketing.  I worked in Ireland and abroad in various industries.  In 2009 I ran away with the rock and roll circus!

 

I love working in a creative environment, I don't need to be the creative one.  I get great satisfaction in being part of the mechanism that gets an artist to the place where they can share their creativity and delight an audience.

 

I have recently completed and submitted my Master’s dissertation on the importance of stakeholder engagement in crisis situations for a MSc in Organisational Resilience.  I am awaiting the results!!  Anxiety level, eleven!!!!!


Interesting Factoid

I have an under 16 all-Ireland water polo gold medal. I like swimming in the sea in winter!!
