Research Output per year
I am a writer, storyteller and journalist. I work with the written word, across audiovisual formats (with a focus on audio), and in live, spoken-word. I like to combine these disciplines.
As a journalist, I have 18+ years of international experience working across print, radio and TV formats for outlets including: the BBC, AFP, RFI, RTE, The Guardian, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, Foreign Policy, Le Monde Diplomatique, and others.
As a film-maker, I've written and directed three short films, my most recent film, 'Un Signe, Un Geste,' was screened at some 50 festivals worldwide, winning ten awards.
I studied journalism to master's level at Columbia University, New York, from where I also earned an master's degree in Politics. I hold a master's degree in Film Directing from the Belgian State Film School (INSAS).
My current media practice focuses on newsgathering; narrative-driven audio and audio-visual media; as well as cross-disciplinary practice, notably with spoken word and live performance.
My current research interests include: docu-fiction and other innovations in the blending of fact and fiction; innovations in technology and their impacts on storytelling form; media and multilingualism; Irish language media; podcasting; and audio drama.
I currently teach the following modules:
BCP1004 Broadcast Journalism
BCP2001 Factual and Documentary
BCP7005 Broadcast Journalism
BCP7002 Radio Documentary and Narrative Podcasting
I am currently developing "BCP3006 Rehabilitating Reality," a new Level Three undergraduate course which will commence in September 2020. It will focus on strategies, styles and approaches in audio and audiovisual storytelling that comandeer fictional and fictive components to bolster and reassert factuality.
Languages: I speak fluent French and Irish, intermediate Arabic (Modern Standard and Levantine) and basic Portuguese.
