I develop, consult on, and produce science and public engagement events. Before working as an independent producer, I developed and ran hundreds of events while working as the Events Programmer at Science Gallery Dublin - from DIY Biology workshops and Curated Dinners about Climate Change, to talks on the future of humanity and massive late-night events with music and comedy. I also co-produced a series of Futureproof Live events when I worked at the show.
I worked on the TEDxDublin team for three years, and was the lead producer of the 2014 event. Each year, TEDxDublin sold out the 2,100-seat Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.
