I’m an Irish freelance writer. I’m based back home in Dublin after making temporary homes of Washington, Moscow and Budapest.

I write (mostly) about Western imperialism and a compliant mainstream media — on both sides of the Atlantic — which helps facilitate it. Also interested in environmental issues, history and Irish politics.

I studied political reporting at the Washington Center for Politics and Journalism and have degree in Business Studies and German from Trinity College Dublin — but most of my real learning has happened in real life, not in lecture halls.

My work has appeared in The Nation, Salon, The Sunday Business Post, The Journal, RT, Russia Direct, The Calvert Journal, The BRICS Post, Rethinking Russia, Russia Beyond the Headlines, Renegade Inc., TeleSUR and others.

I speak semi-decent German and am embroiled in an ongoing battle with Russian.

Huge dog lover.
