About the Author…
I’m a modest blogger with plenty to be modest about. A former civil servant and record store slacker, I took the scenic route to journalism, and I’m still enjoying the scenery. Publications I’ve written for include The Sunday Business Post, the Evening Herald, State Magazine, U Magazine, The Ticket in The Irish Times, InDublin, NME Ireland, AU, LivingIn and SoundsXP.com.
I contribute opinion and comment to many a radio show, including RTE Radio 1’s Arena, the Dave Fanning show on 2FM and The Kiosk on Phantom 105.2 . I’ve also been known to write the occasional, thoroughly entertaining script, some “thrilling” corporate copy and I’m constantly on the verge of throwing his first novel out into the world – something that will happen very soon.
My favourite things include music, books, film, television, theatre, art, vegetarian/vegan food, wine, coffee, gardening, travel, ranting/raving and AC Fiorentina. I think about death a little too much. I come from Scotland, I was brought up mainly by Italians, became even more opinionated during a decade in London, and I now reside in Dublin.
