I received a B.Sc. in Multimedia. In this course I learned the basics of multimedia software and techniques as well a deep understanding of the media environment. My classes included Photography, Web Design, Film Studies and Script Writing. I followed up the techniques learned in this degree to a more advanced level in my own time both during the degree and after.
I had an interest in Physics coming from the Leaving Cert but I eventually realised that it just wasn’t for me so I did an internal transfer and switched over to DCU’s multimedia course in 2007. I was doing multimedia projects in my own time anyway so it made sense to follow it up with a degree in the area.
My responsibilities at the BDI included keeping the website up to date, creating informational videos, and designing various print material such as information booklets and posters. I created promotional videos and animations for the BDI and also for researchers within the BDI. I also help out with various aspects of the new International M.Sc. in Biomedical Diagnostics such as creating graphics for the online modules and creating the full Intro to Biology course using Articulate.
Jan 2016 – June 2016
Research Support & Innovation, Dublin City University
My primary role in this position was to create websites for some of the research centres in Dublin City University. Examples of the websites created can be found here: CASTeL and IICRR.
July 2016 – Present
Since July of 2016 I’ve been working as a freelance graphic designer, working mainly on creating small to medium size websites using WordPress. I am also available for video and photography work. You can find samples of my work here.
I am a media enthusiast. I like to keep up on current trends of all types of digital and print media. I especially enjoy photography and investigating what is possible with the combination of camera and software such as Photoshop. Fitness is also a hobby of mine. I like to keep fit by going to the gym and going for runs and I regularly enter myself into races and endurance events. I play team sports whenever I can such as football and tag rugby.
