Growing up in Sligo, I spent childhood summers exploring the beaches, lakes and landscapes of the west coast of Ireland, which gave me a love and appreciation for the outdoors that has never left me.
I studied Mechanical Engineering, then worked in the energy and emissions reduction industry for ten years in the UK before leaving the corporate world to fully pursue my passion for the outdoors and return to living by the coast and mountains.
I am happiest in, on, or around the water, whatever the weather! I love whitewater kayaking, dunking myself in the sea, attempting to surf, or just wandering on the beach with the sound of the waves crashing beside me. When not immersing myself in the outdoors or adventuring with Bridget the Van, you’ll probably find me cooking or learning how to keep all the vegetables in the polytunnels alive.
Favourite Place to Play
