I am a film editor, intermedia artist, and composer. I specialise in post-production film, creative music technology, digital music composition, and audio-visual interactive media. I am currently based in Oslo, Norway.
I have post-production experience in feature film and television including assistant editor and casting director of the BBC comedy series The Young Offenders (2018), assistant editor and voiceover recordist on the award-winning feature The Young Offenders (2016), in addition to composition, post-production and sound mixing for national advertising campaigns including Fáilte Ireland (Irish Tourism Board), TV3, and Focus Ireland. As director, content-writer, cameraman, and editor, I have worked with the Institute of Popular Music, University of Liverpool (UK), and University College Cork (IE) on research documentaries, online video courses/MOOCs, and promotional videos.
I was the winner of the People’s Choice Award & Judges Panel Award at Cork Photo Festival 2016, and have had compositions premiered at the National Concert Hall, Dublin, the Irish Film Institute, International Computer Music Conference (Athens), the Bluecoat (Liverpool), and York New Music Festival (UK). Recent intermedia exhibitions have shown at the Brighton Photo Fringe (UK) and the Crawford Art Gallery, Cork (IE).
I was awarded a PhD in music composition from the National University of Ireland, supervised by Dr Jeffrey Weeter (Fire & Ice, Lavamatic) and John Godfrey (Crash Ensemble, Quiet Music Ensemble), with external examination by Robert Henke (Monolake, Ableton Live) and Professor Mel Mercier. Before this, I studied music composition under Dr Jesse Ronneau, and music technology with Dave Tomlinson (Magazine, Visage, Strongroom Recording Studios) at the University of Hull (UK).
I am a lecturer and research affiliate with University College Cork (IE), teaching creative music technology practices and composing with visual programming languages.
