Born in Ireland. Studied yacht design in Southampton. Moved to South Africa and worked as a yacht designer in Southern Wind Shipyard and Gunboat. Whilst working with Gunboat moved from design to marketing. From years of directing photography decided to try it full time myself under the wing of Richard Langdon at Ocean Images. Have been doing this now full time for 5 years based out of the UK, whilst working the logistics for Team Phaedo.
