My background is interdisciplinary, my interests many and wide-ranging. I was educated at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, and at Trinity College, Dublin. I work as a musician and as an independent editor, though I constantly strive to interweave my work and my personal pursuits into one creatively integrated life.
On the musical side, I am a performer, producer, and artistic director. This work has taken me around the world: to Broadway, Carnegie Hall, and The Kennedy Center, to L'Olympia and the Folies Bergères in Paris, to theatres from Shanghai to São Paulo, and even to a bullring in Mallorca. I am currently artistic director of un grand spectacle in France called ‘Fête de la St. Patrick et de la Bretagne’, and a member of the trio Open the Door for Three.
My passion for reading, words, and the English language brought me into the burgeoning field of independent magazine publication. I am the co-founder and editor of Éirways, a magazine about Irish culture and people at home and around the world. In addition, I am sub-editor of the seminal Offscreen, working alongside indie magazine pioneer Kai Brach to bring refinement and clarity to its content.
I am humbled to have once been described by the legendary author and broadcaster Studs Terkel* as ‘a one man ecumenical movement’, but in that spirit I truly seek to listen, read, cook, observe, travel, ask questions, and pursue the unorthodox with equal curiosity.
