Thank you for visiting my website.
I am a Belfast-based freelance journalist and commentator from the north of the city.
I am member of the National Union of Journalists Belfast branch.
For over a decade I have been working as a Northern Correspondent and Ireland Stringer for Irish, British and international media outlets.
My written work has appeared in: The Washington Post; Reuters; The Irish Times; The Sunday Times; The Guardian; New Statesman; Daily Mirror; The Irish News; and other publications.
My broadcasting and commentary work includes: BBC; UTV; RTÉ; Sky; LBC; and others.
I cover breaking news, features, politics, lobby, courts, business, social affairs, the arts, lifestyle, food, travel, reviews, and more.
Variety is one of the great joys of being an independent journalist and working for myself.
As well as being a writer and broadcaster I am also an: event host; panellist; fixer; producer; copywriter; and trainer.
