PRODUCING

I am a producer and actor who co-founded and ran bspoke theatre company, a multi award winning company. See here here to open in a separate window. I continue to produce high quality theatre and produce large-scale cultural events with a global reach.

Producer St Brigid’s Day, Irish Embassy, Grosvenor Place, London.

I worked as producer under Ambassador Adrian O’Neill and his senior leadership team to develop and deliver the inaugural “St. Brigid’s Day” for London. This blueprint was rolled out across embassies and consulates by the Department of Foreign Affairs and in 2022, it was signed into Government as a new Irish public holiday from February 2023.

Salon Eire 100

I created, developed, and produced Salon Eire 100, a multi-disciplinary festival for New York over six weeks in Spring 2016. Salon Eire 100 traced the journey of the Irish artist over 100 years, from 1916 to 2016 through photography, literature, poetry, music, theatre, and art. The festival included artists such as Iarla Ó Lionáird, Kim Haughton, Clair Wills, Liz Nugent, Louise Lowe, Geraldine O’Sullivan, Alvey Carragher & Conor Linehan.
