I am a  freelance curator who is currently engaged in postgraduate research with Maynooth University (Dr Mark Maguire, Anthropology PhD Programme ) in association with TCD School of Medicine ((Prof Martina Hennessy) and Kimmage Development Studies Centre (Dr Rob Kevlihan). The project is funded by the Irish Research Council under its Employment Based Postgraduate Research Programme 2015 – 2020.

As a freelance curator I specialise in social documentary and ethnographic photography in Ireland. I am a graduate of NCAD (1984) where I specialised in arts education. I have worked in a number of educational contexts including Triskel Arts Centre (first full time Education Officer in an Arts Centre) and the Arts Council (Education Officer, 1992-5). I joined The National Folk Theatre as Visual Arts Director in 1995 where I worked until June 2010, when I established www.curator.ie as a vehicle for independent visual arts projects. In 2008 I completed an MA by Research (HETAC) and,In 2014, I completed a 2 year Dioplóma sa Ghaeilge with NUI Galway, graduating with a first (Céadonóracha). I am currently involved in developing a post-grad research project with Maynooth University.

Is céimí de chuid an Choláiste Náisiúnta Ealaíne agus Deartha (1984) mé, áit ar dhírigh mé ar oideachas ealaíon. Tá obair déanta agam i gcomhthéacsanna oideachas éagsúla, Ionad Ealaíne Triskel agus An Chomhairle Ealaíne (Oifigeach Oideachais, 1922-5) ina measc. Luigh mé le Siamsa Tíre mar Stiúrthóir Físealaíne i 1995 agus d’oibrigh mé ann go Meitheamh 2010, nuair a bhunaigh mé http://www.curator.ie chun tionscadail nuálacha a chur i gcrích. I 2008 bhain mé amach MA trí Thaighde (HETAC) agus, I 2014 bhain mé amach Dioplóma sa Ghaeilge le OÉG (Ollscoil Éireann Gaillimh) le Céadonóracha.
