I have 20 years industry experience at Cartoon Saloon
where I'm currently Assistant Director on Nora Twomey's upcoming feature film "My Father's Dragon".
Recently I co-directed 52 episodes of the TV-show "Dorg Van Dango", with Matt Ferguson,
and the Greenpeace film "There's a monster in my kitchen" with Tomm Moore.
I was Animation Director on Cartoon Saloon's Academy Award nominated feature films
"The Breadwinner", "Song Of The Sea", and "The Secret Of Kells".
Throughout the years I have worked on a wide range of Saloon feature films and TV-shows,
as well as short films and commercials.
I usually work across several areas of pre-production and main production,
reviewing model sheets, scripts, storyboards and animatic edits,
to character posing, rough animation and clean, and finally up to post production.
As an extension of my work, I enjoy teaching and sharing knowledge with students,
having taught specific animation modules at The Animation Workshop in Denmark.
In 2021 I was awarded the Irish Animation Award for 'Best Director of an animated series'
for Dorg Van Dango.
