I am a writing and editing professional from Ireland with fleeting aspirations of infiltrating the world of academia. Currently, I write about the high-brow world of football, specifically Irish football, and the good people at Goal trust me to help with editorial duties as part of the Irish edition. In addition to Goal, my work has appeared in the You Boys in Green magazine, Backpage Football, Irish Times, Irish Independent, Evening Echo, Sports News Ireland and has been syndicated on TheScore.ie.

Having completed a BA in English and Classics at the National University of Ireland, Galway, in 2011, I subsequently completed an MA in Classics at the same institution, where my thesis, titled ‘The Katabasis of Kubrick’, examined classical themes in the films of Stanley Kubrick.
