I had just completed a bachelors degree in engineering at University College Cork and was keen to set up a personal website to display some of my work.

By September I had moved from my home city of Cork to the capital Dublin. Leaving college life behind I joined the Irish power system operator as an engineer. I’ve been with EirGrid for four years now, continuing to develop and grow my skills.

My professional interests include engineering, project management, programme management, communication and training, business strategy, design thinking, and sustainable development. I currently work in EirGrid’s Programme Management Office, managing a pipeline of grid development projects across Ireland.

In my spare time I enjoy travelling to weird and exotic places, health and fitness, reading, music and socialising with family and friends. I have a keen interest in technology and design and dabble in some web development on the side.

One of my biggest strengths lies in my passion for clear and concise communication. I enjoy public speaking and making presentations and have been developing a collection of free articles, interviews and resources on Communicate You blog since 2015.
