Hi. I'm an Irish hospital doctor, currently living in Melbourne and seeing for myself why it's "the world's most liveable city" ;)

I've a broad range of interests which is reflected by my diverse experiences as a student, educator and professional. Over the past 9 years my time has been spent everywhere from the halls of academia of UCC [BSc (Hons) Physiology] and UL (BMBS), to barracks squares and firing ranges with Irelands Reserve Defence Forces, to Red Bull Ireland’s boardroom. I am also a wannabe social entrepreneur and was a founding member of UCC’s Entrepreneurial & Social Society.

As you can see I've a wide range of interests but special interests include Wilderness Medicine, Men’s Health and the use of Social Media in Education. Love sport (esp. GAA & Rugby), enjoy reading (esp. John Connolly) and always doing something new (learning to play guitar atm).

I think Milton summed up the power of positive psychology; “The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven...”
