I have been working in the field of photography and graphic design for over 25 years. I started out as a desktop publisher for Graphic Reproductions in Dublin for 3 years before becoming the picture desk manager at Inpho Photography for a further 6 years. I left Dublin for Barcelona in 2003 and have worked as a freelance photo editor, location manager and photo retoucher for various photographers over the years. Throughout my time in Barcelona I have fluctuated between graphic design and photography. I have designed various websites. I love working with photography and text, flyers and posters being my passion. My most recent project was as the graphic designer for the current exhibition Liberxina in MNAC (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya). I am a visualist, I love creating images, whether it be through the medium of photography or design.
In December 2020 my project ‘Train’ was shortlisted for the publication ‘The Crisis & the Future of Democracy’ from the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation. In 2021 the British Journal of Photography chose 2 of my images from the same project for their online exhibition ‘Edition 365’.
