Living a more simple life

Introverted by nature, with a desire to build a life of authentic fulfillment in the wilds of rural western Ireland.

A simpler life more aligned to the need of planet and myself to nurture creativty & growth own my own terms.

Professional Experience

With a diverse range of professional and lived experiences to draw from ranging from Technical IT to roles, to Project Management, Sales, Coaching and most recently Web Design, I have learned much through the years – all of which helps me provide an unusual persective and insight

Having lived in, travelled independently through and worked across a range of countries, including the UK, Ireland, South Korea, China, Canada and the US, I have a experienced and learned much about cultures, politics and myself.

In my personal life, so many topics interest me from International Relations (politics, culture and economies) to design in everything, to gaming, to neuro-divergency and biodiversity. Someone who always needs something to be curious about.




Living a life more attuned and dedicated to my own values. The sorts of values I would hope are held in equal importance by others: Integrity, Accountability, Responsibility, Equality and Inclusion. All with independent, critical thinking. And a little humour.
