I was born in North Dublin in 1987. I got my degree in Spanish and Sociology in Trinity College, after which I moved to Barcelona where I stayed for four years, trying with some difficulty to become an adult. In October 2013 I moved to Madrid to begin a new and less insane stage in my life. I have written sporadically from a young age but only started to take it more seriously about two years ago. At that point my writing served as a kind of therapeutic release. Since then it has developed into something else, whatever that may be. I have been published in Misfits’ Miscellany, Word Riot, Pif Magazine, Life as an (insert label here), and The Blue Hour. I now work as a freelance translator and live with my partner Alberto, musician and all round creative junky. Currently I am working on a bilingual collection of my poetry, which will be illustrated by my amazingly talented and unique friend, Catherine Howley. Without the support and encouragement of my wonderful and at times mad family, my partner Alberto, and my writer friend, Heather Minette, I probably wouldn’t have the guts to ever share any of this.
Thanks for reading.
