My story

I began playing at age 8 and became immersed in the vibrant Irish, Scottish and Cape Breton traditional music communities in the Boston area. I was fortunate to study with great teachers, Hanneke Cassel, Tommy Peoples, and George Keith. As I performer I‘ve had the opportunity to play theatres, festivals, and radio stations around the world; some of my favorites include RTE's Ceili House, WGBH's Celtic Sojourn and Club Passim. I’ve had to great honor to share the stage with some legendary musicians, including Tommy Peoples, Liz Carroll, and Karan Casey.

After spending many years performing and teaching in the Boston area, I now make my home in Dublin, Ireland. In Dublin I completed a MSc degree in Creative Digital Media at the Dublin Institute of Technology where I collaborated on Irish cultural and Traditional Music projects such as Fainne, a mobile cultural tourism app for Corca Dhuibhne Gaeltacht. I continue to perform and teach regularly in Ireland and abroad while also working as a UX designer and researcher at IBM.
