I travel. I write. I talk.

This website is an attempt to bring the various strands of my professional life - travel writing, presenting radio and podcasting - into one place. I've been lucky enough to convert a love of travel into a successful career as one of Ireland's best-known guidebook authors and travel journalist, and my love of telling people about it into a successful career as an award-winning radio presenter and podcaster.

Separate strands united to one purpose: the successful communication of a message. 

I'm always on the lookout for a new challenge that will channel my skills as a media and communications professional with vast experience in feature writing, editing, radio and media relations. 

I was part of the 'gig economy' before I knew such a thing existed.
