After qualifying in Environmental Science I worked with spirited young people and adults, in the fields of conservation, habitat management, life skills and outdoor pursuits. I also delivered workshops fusing Graffiti Art/Music Production/DJ Skills and Breakdancing, developing intervention programs, training courses and qualifications designed to help people move forward in life.
When my friend Grizzly Dan introduced me to surfing, I got the bug and moved to Ireland in 2010 to be nearer to the ocean. Making Westport my base in the process. Having looked at setting up 'Westport Photography Tours' in 2012, the Gallery space was originally identified as a base for my photography and tours, I ended up being busy with other things at that time and in late 2014, still wondering what I was doing, I softly opened The Gallery.
