    ▪ As a STEM professional with two degrees in engineering and a Ph D in science and over 20 years as artist, I am passionate about awakening people’s curiosity. I set up my business to push boundaries in telling the human story behind science, to attract those people who feel that space and STEM isn't rightfully theirs to explore, to be an advocate for space for sustainabilty, and to support diversity and equity in STEM.

    ▪ Sharing a new perspective of Earth from space for the general public- creating outreach and artistic content to attract non-STEM audiences to space, to raise awareness about protecting our planet and of Europe's rich space legacy.

    ▪ With offices in Ireland and at Rhinespace Cospace on International Space University Campus in Strasbourg, I have been working with many teams on outreach & public engagement activities since 2013. Collaborators include European Space Agency, ESERO Ireland, Arts@CERN, British Council, & private corporations. 

    ▪ In some of my work, I have embarked on space-related activities and shared my personal experiences in video, and in writing. Previous missions include a parabolic flight (Star City, Moscow), analogue Mars crew missions (Mars Desert Research Station in Utah, USA  & at DMARS, Israel), and a trip to cover the launch & re-entry of ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst at Baikonur cosmodrome.

    Leaving Certificate Grade C  (Hons, 1986)


    Communication skills

    ▪ With my unique suite of skills in science, engineering, writing and performance and over 10 years of experience combining them together,  I have an innate understanding of how to communicate space and STEM topics to audiences who are not already engaged in STEM. By humanising science, whether in theatre, video, or live events there is better understanding of science for the audience.

    ▪ Qualification in Practical Science Communications from Cambridge University and over 8 years experience in communicating space activities with the general public.

    ▪ Public speaking- 100+ events including TEDxUCD (2014), New Scientist LIVE Cosmos stage (2018), WIRED Live UK (2018), NASA Johnson Cross-Industry Innovation Summit, Irish President's residence Arts an Uachtarain on International Women's Day, 2019

    ▪ Creator of 50+ public events in Ireland, the UK and Europe

    ▪ Interviews with ESA astronauts and ESA STEM professionals : Thomas PesquetSam Cristoforetti, & Romain CharlesAidan Cowley

    ▪ Active engagement in social media channels to promote space: YouTubeTwitterInstagramFacebook


    Organisational / managerial skills

    In my current role, I regularly 

    ▪ lead teams in collaborative projects involving a number of stakeholders

    ▪ facilitate team building & communications workshops as part of my current role

    ▪ manage a number of concurrent projects across different teams, timelines and budgets 

    Space-related skills/experiences

    ▪ Analogue Mars mission at Mars Desert Research Station, Utah, USA (2017):  Assigned the Crew Journallist for Crew 173 the mission lasted 15 Sols. I know that the experience only slightly simulated the real-life experiences of surviving uninhabitable environments, but I still gained a lot from the experience: the importance of maintaining strong team communications, putting the needs of your crew first, when to lead and when to follow. What I hadn't expected to happen however was a better appreciation of the resources of our planet, and how we can apply a lot of technology developed for space (closed loop systems, more efficient recycling systems) as feasible sustainable solutions on Earth. When I returned home, I learned to live more minimally. Space for sustainability is an important topic to share with the general public.

    ▪ Parabolic flight, Star City, Moscow (2017) onboard the  Ilyushin-76 MDK which made ten parabolic flight manoeuvres. 

    ▪ Baikonur Cosmodrome/Kazakstan (June, Dec 2018) to share the launch and return of ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst six-month mission onboard the ISS with the general public.

    ▪ My training as a physical therapist has given me the skills to remain calm in health emergencies and administering first aid


    Computer skills

     ▪ Good command of Microsoft Office™ & Apple Mac desktop tools, Project management tools, video, sound and photography editing tools (Adobe Creative Cloud), AutoCAD
