Spatial Practices Programme; Mentor and Placement Broker, MA Narrative Environments.

I am a designer specialising in the creation of narrative environments.

Interested in all kinds of spaces that tell stories, I have experience working in immersive theatre, set design, festivals, pop-ups, branded environments, exhibitions and interiors. I have designed exhibitions and story-led experiences for a variety of companies and cultural institutions including The Science Gallery, Event and Secret Cinema and have also worked with RAA, Torvits + Trench, Wayward, Secret Productions, Punchdrunk and The Irish Museum of Modern Art.

My most recent project was to lead the design for the SEEING exhibition at The Science Gallery, Dublin. During my BA and MA I developed a deep interest in how narrative theory can be applied to spatial design to create memorable experiences. I balance teaching on several courses with my practice as a freelance designer.
