I am a writer, editor, and researcher from Ireland. I have served as Editor and sat on the editorial boards of cultural and literary reviews and magazines, such as Cacao Europa and Les Cahiers Européens de l'Imaginaire. I am a professional member of the Irish Writers Centre, the official representative body of writing professionals in Ireland, where I serve on their panel of writing mentors. I have been awarded funding by the Irish Arts Council and Moniack Mhor, Scotland's creative writing centre. My current work includes prose fiction, essays, and drama.

I hold a PhD from the Sorbonne in narrative sociology and have been a post-doctoral scholar of narrative and memory. I have been employed for several years as a part-time research consultant for the Paris-based research cabinet, Eranos.

My first play, Éire Saor, an immersive farcical comedy exploring Irish history, was staged at Bellurgan Park by Rag Bag productions in December 2017. A second, Cú Chulainn the lover, was staged at arts festivals around Ireland in 2018. I was a finalist in the 2018 Tennessee Williams Festival One-Act Play Contest for my play #FrontierSpirit.
