Frequently Asked Question
I’ve been a full-time self-employed writer for almost two years at the time of writing.
My client-base consists primarily of technology startups and companies, with some public affairs work and ghostwriting on behalf of private individuals thrown in to the mix too!
My “in-house” professional experience consists of two tenures as the Marketing Communications (MarCom) manager at SaaS startups: one in the industrial IoT space and the other a political technology platform. Along the way, I made a brief detour by joining the tech team of a PR firm.
Prior to that, I founded, edited, and sold a university news website that grew to be Ireland’s second most popular student news website by traffic estimates and which was awarded a place in the inaugural intake of University College Cork’s flagship graduate business accelerator, the IGNITE program.
For three years, I was also a corresponding writer for Irish-America’s largest media organization, IrishCentral, authoring a popular column on the website and contributing authorship to The Irish Voice — Irish-America’s best-known print publication, primarily distributed in the tri-State area.
I hold an undergraduate degree in Law (University College Cork) and a Master’s in Political Journalism (City University London). And I, of course, have a resume which I can share with you privately.
I’m also a longtime Linux fan and currently pursuing an AWS certification mostly for fun. Aside from writing and tech, I am a huge ethnic cooking and travel fan.
A list of some skills I can bring to the table is at this link. Besides writing, it includes basic image editing and graphics design work, CMS work (“technically fluent”, I should be able to do everything from upload content to your WordPress instance or even equip myself to push updated static content to a Git repository.)
