Born in Dublin when the Celtic Tiger was still a starving kitten prowling the alleyways. We emigrated to the US. Eventually I became a professional writer and amateur musician. I come from a musical family, and played piano & guitar. Now, stiff-fingered but still loose-wristed, I’m exploring taking up bodhran. (But a little worried about there being so many of us and hearing we have a bit of an in-your-face reputation. Oh well.)

Previously I was publications director at the National Association for Music Education, where I wrote articles, edited journals and books, and coached music educators who wanted to write books about teaching music.

I’m interested in lots of things, but these are the highlights of my work and interest in music. Looking forward to exploring The Sessions!
