I have worked in TV production for many years now and have been working as a production coordinator and researcher for much of this time. Outside of television, I have worked as a researcher for exhibitions, gallery installations, and conferences. I have always been fascinated by researching stories and creating new content through work.

During my years in television, I have been lucky enough to work on a variety of programs. These have included light entertainment ('Animal Obsessions' for Animal Planet), history ('Sacred Sites' for the Smithsonian Channel) and the last production that I worked on, a factual documentary 'James Joyce: A Shout in the Streets'.

This last program was produced in conjunction with three broadcasters; BBC, RTE and ARTE. For this program, (an in-depth look into the work and life of writer James Joyce) we featured a number of well-established contributors and used a lot of archive. As one can imagine, the subject of Joyce has been documented very frequently across Irish media over the years. As a production team, we had to work together to look into exciting and creative ways of bringing new angles and interesting, unexplored aspects of his life to fore for the show. Another integral part of my job was to source material but also to make sure that it was correctly cleared for transmission.

Aside from my experience in research, I have spent a considerable amount of my working career in production. I began as a runner, moving on to a production assistant and have now worked as a production coordinator on a number of projects. I am a highly organized person, who is enjoys multitasking, thrives under pressure and enjoys being a part of a team. Last year, I participated in the BBC Academy's Production Coordinator training program in Glasgow. This was not only an enjoyable experience but provided me with some insight into the BBC work atmosphere. I believe the experience I gained there will prove an enormous help to my future career, given the notoriety and universal respect of this broadcaster.

I really enjoy working with others but also love using my own initiative and being a problem solver. I think my combined experiences in the fields of production and research showcase the perfect mix for working in TV production. I strive to create interesting content with fresh ideas and concepts but also have a great understanding of the correct methods of going about producing a great show. Read Less
