As Marketing Manager for the Schreyer Honors College, I lead the media and PR program for the nation's leading honors college. Our team was recently honored as the Gold Award Winner (Microsite Category) in the Education Digital Marketing Awards, 2014. Project management, relationship development, experimentation and flexible thinking are key to this constantly evolving role.

Prior to this position I was the Head of Social Media for the international award winning Brando Advertising Agency, Dublin. My role was to develop overall strategies that engaged clients’ communities via multiple social media platforms and to create buzzworthy social media projects like #Tweetsweets, a twitter controlled candy machine, that won ‘Most Innovative Use of Social Media’ at the 2012 Irish Social Media Awards.

In 2011, I started and ran @DubSkillshare, Share your skills and learn from others. All for free. From programming to pruning and hacking to hip-hop, Dublin Skillshare workshops were designed for the curious, creative and inquisitive who like to know a little bit about everything.

Formerly the pied piper of events at the innovative Science Gallery, Trinity College Dublin, my experience in event management combined art and technology with new approaches of interactivity and public engagement. I bring my passion for arts events from the National Gallery of Victoria, AUS and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY to blend the hottest trends in social and new media with my love of quirky social gatherings – both virtual and physical. I've also lectured on event management for the British Council.
