I started my writing career when I lived in Turkey, teaching English to adults and children. When I came back to Ireland I worked as an advertising copywriter and freelance journalist, writing feature articles for Irish newspapers, until an opportunity came along to work for an Internet start-up. In 2003 I set up my own web company, Usable Design.

I met my wife, Birgit, in Turkey and we now live in County Wicklow. We have two children.

My debut YA science fiction novel, Jacob’s Ladder, will be published in spring 2019.
