A little introduction….

This is me, I founded Go Radiate in 2011 after graduating with a Masters in Digital Media Technology (DIT). I became an illustrator because I wanted to be really happy in my job and it worked!

I always aim to put love and happiness into everything I do and I hope that shows in my drawings. I really enjoy working with people and helping them learn new ways of expressing their creativity. I love using intuition to guide me along with my usual, logical and linear approach, and I always try to create a gentle and playful work environment. I’ve been really lucky in attracting the nicest students and the coolest clients…

My undergraduate degree is in Architecture (B.Sc from UCD) and I am also an Adobe Certified Expert. (Read more on LinkedIn.)
