A career to date which reflects the capacity to lead and influence change at an organisational and industry level. Established two organisations, one for the independent film and TV industry in Ireland, the second for theatre and the performing arts. Outside of these roles, I worked to develop and influence public policy, for example as one of the founders of the National Campaign for the Arts. I was CEO of IAPI, the body representing creative and media agencies in Ireland & country representative for the Cannes Lion Festival of Creativity. As Director of the Creative Ireland Programme, I work to embed creativity in public policy across government departments.
