I am passionate about sharing great stories in the most innovative and engaging way possible. An Irish/New Zealand national, my career as a senior broadcast journalist now spans more than 30 years. I worked as a senior journalist, presenter & producer at EuronewsNBC for 14 years and at numerous other media groups including the BBC, Radio France International and Radio New Zealand. I am now an independent journalist, France & Europe correspondent, debate & conference moderator and media trainer/consultant. I am fluent in French, having lived in France for more than 20 years, and happy to work in both English and French. I am based in the cities of Paris and Lyon, but willing to travel and work anywhere. I can be called upon to cover breaking news stories and I am ready to travel to neighbouring cities or countries at short notice. As well as being specialised in European and international affairs, covering many major news stories live on television and radio, I produced and presented numerous global programmes at EuronewsNBC for many years. The shows - Right On, Postcards, Urban Visions, Life, Focus, Target and Metropolitans - put the spotlight on a wide variety of subjects, from human rights to culture and tourism, in many different countries around the world. I have also worked as a radio and television tutor at one of France's top journalism schools, the CFJ in Paris, and my most recent work as a media relations consultant has been for the likes of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation and the World Bank in Africa. My work as a moderator has been for high-profile events including a debate on Brexit at the World Travel Market in London and for an event in The Hague held by the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights.
