My Interests

Motorsport is my first love, rallying in particular. I compete, navigate and assist in organising events. Mixed Martial Arts has become a new found interest for me over the last few years. I train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in SBG Killarney, and do my strength and conditioning work in R&R Fitness, Castleisland. Food & music are also passions of mine.

  • Motorsport
  • MMA/BJJ

Services I Offer

PHOTOGRAPHY

Visual


The importance of clear, correctly composed photographs are often under appreciated. We live in a visual dependant world where you need to stand out in order to get recognised for the right reasons. Capturing these moments is where I work best.

VIDEO

Production


Video is the fastest growing media in todays world and is the perfect way to communicate a message. Whether it is a promotional video for a business or a personal documentary, I cater and adapt for all needs and situations, whatever they may be.

WEB DEVELOPMENT

Site Architecture


A website is a crucial part of everyones online identity. It gives a platform to showcase their identity in a professional manner. I create unique websites to match your vision, ensuring you are presented in the best possible light to the general public.

DESIGN

UI/UX design


Graphic design covers a huge array of subjects - everything from a promotional poster for an event, sponsorship proposal, menu or graphics for online use. You only get one chance to make a first impression. You would be surprised at what I can design.

BRANDING SUPPORT

SEO


Social Media is an extremely effective tool, if used correctly. Unless you are meeting the requirements for design, content and general settings, you are not using each platform to its full potential. I ensure your content gets viewed professionally.

PUBLIC RELATIONS

Content


Information via words appears regularly. You solely rely on the use of words to evoke different emotions, thus making every piece of text vitally important. Managing press releases, 'about us' sections and general information posts is where I thrive.

A short highlights video I recorded & produced of the Galway International Rally 2017. Special thanks to Flyin Finn Motorsport for the use of some of their clips.

Irish Tarmac Championship

Throughout the 2016 Irish Tarmac Rally Championship, I teamed up with well respected media personnel such as Sean Hassett (Herospec.com) & Eamonn Finn (Flyin Finn Motorsport) to record, edit and produce end of day video updates for each event. This requires a quick turnaround but it clearly has a profound effect as with we have been able to achieve over 250,000 views from Facebook alone. After each event, it is my duty is to compile all recorded footage and send it to Michael Bracken (On The Limit Sports) for use in the television programme which airs in the weeks following.

Above this text you will find our latest video from the first round of the 2017 Championship, the Galway International Rally. You can find many more of our videos by clicking here.

Graphics Video

SevereMMA is Ireland’s leading website for MMA interviews, documentaries & written content. They are world renounced and are built up of a diverse team. Each week, two members of the team, Graeme McDonnell & Seán Sheehan, conduct a podcast with all the latest news and views of the MMA world. Recently, I began to work amongst these guys and produce a weekly ‘Severe Snippet’. This takes a slice of the overall podcast and accompany it with some visuals for YouTube.

Experience & Achievements

Spurred on by my keen interest in motorsport, I decided to purchase my first DSLR and set up a mini business at the age of 13. While the main aim was originally motorsport photography, it quickly broadened to other forms of media including video recording, in-car camera systems and graphic design. Rally Focus Media is now one of the most respected and reputable names in the Irish & UK motorsport scene.

2012

Kerry Enterprise Board

During Transition we were expected to come up with a business idea, business plan and present it in Tralee along with other selected finalists. I won the 'Best Enterprising Student' Award, given out by the Kerry Enterprise Board for Rally Focus Media.

2012 - NOW

Public Relations

As mentioned above, after starting with photography, I quickly expanded into other various forms of media. To date I have supplied different teams, championships and media outlets with various images, videos and press releases. I have worked with many well-known motorsport names including Jon Armstrong, Robert Duggan, Callum Devine, Declan Boyle, Thomas Fitzmaurice, Sam & Josh Moffett, Craig Breen & many, many more.

2014

Peugeot Sport

Factory rally team Peugeot Sport used the 2014 Circuit of Kerry Stages Rally as the world debut tarmac rally for their Peugeot 208 T16 rally car. They conducted a two day test prior to the event, in which I was delighted to give some assistance too in the form of video analysis footage for professional rally drivers Craig Breen and Kevin Abbring who both now compete in the World Rally Championship.

I gained official Motorsport Ireland Media Accreditation in 2014 having turned 18. Currently, I am one of the youngest accredited members of media under Motorsport Ireland and I pride myself on providing quality content to such outlets as On The Limit Sports and Flyin Finn Motorsport which often sees my footage being broadcast on national TV.

2015 - 2016

Kerry Motor Club

Having been a club member since 2010, an opening became available for the Press Relations Officer position in my local motor club. I immediately expressed an interest in the position and was voted in at our AGM in December 2014. I gained valuable experience from my year as PRO, making several appearances on local radio and earning valued media contacts. Unfortunately I was forced to relinquish the role in late 2015 while I focused on my studies.
