About the Author…

I’m a former civil servant and record shop slacker, who 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’ve contributed 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 thoroughly entertaining scripts, thrilling corporate copy and I’m a creative writer in what passes for my spare time.

Favourite things include music, books, film, television, art, vegan food & wine, coffee, gardening, travel, AC Fiorentina and Kilmarnock FC.   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.
