American by birth but European in spirit, I’ve called the US, Costa Rica, Spain, England, Poland, France and Ireland home. In the past decade, I’ve explored some 35 countries, but have fallen in love with the rich Irish culture, history and sweeping landscapes. I’ve been Wilderness Ireland’s Marketing Executive since 2017. I am also the Wilderness Group’s point of contact for all things PR.
Favourite Place to Play
Anywhere I can hike or bike with spectacular views, see a castle, and take beautiful photos. I absolutely love Ireland’s ancient heritage and it brings me great joy to hike out to Ireland’s plethora of cairns, stone circles, cashels, souterrains, churches, and more.
I love Sligo, but my favourite corner of it is Carrowkeel which I’m lucky to have just in front of my house. Donegal is a wild landscape that has always fascinated me, and walking the Causeway Coast is spectacular. The Dingle Way is a pretty neat hike too. But I do think that the Irish Midlands is an underappreciated region of the island that most people completely overlook.
Not a lot of People Know This
I am a total book nerd. I almost never leave the house without a book in my bag, and can’t resist a library, bookshop or free book drop. I read about 100 books a year, mostly in English but a handful in French or sometimes even Spanish. I can also decipher the Cyrillic alphabet (very poorly).
