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

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, Russia Direct, The Calvert Journal, The BRICS Post, Rethinking Russia,The Journal, Russia Beyond the Headlines, RT, Renegade Inc., the Sunday Business Post, TeleSUR and others.

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

Huge dog lover.

I write about the US, Russia, Ireland and the media. Also interested in environmental issues.
