My professional career began in 2007 after graduating with a degree in Building Services Engineering from DIT Bolton Street and joining RN Murphy and Associates at their headquarters in Ringsend.
During my tenure there, I worked on a variety of projects including the roll-out of Bank of Ireland branch refurbishment projects throughout Ireland and a site-based roll in London working on the Athlete’s Village in preparation for the 2014 Olympics. I attended Glasgow Caledonian University part-time and obtained my honours degree in 2010.
I have continued to work in the field of consultancy and have over 15 years’ experience in the design & successful delivery of a wide range of projects in the high-end bespoke residential, commercial, hospitality, logistics, educational and life science sectors throughout Ireland and internationally including England, Channel Islands, Poland and Dubai.
I joined Metec in July 2015 as a Senior Mechanical Engineer and have since progressed to become an Executive Director in 2022.
I’ve always loved travelling, meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. In 2011, I took a sabbatical with my now-wife and embarked on a year-long journey beginning in Hong Kong, meandering through south-east Asia before spending seven months exploring the beautiful north and south islands of New Zealand. We also enjoyed brief spells in Singapore, Bali, Fiji and have been lucky to have safaried and cage dived with great white sharks in South Africa.
Weather permitting, I enjoy getting outdoors for hikes around the Wicklow mountains with the family on weekends.
Two years ago I hung up the football boots and joined the local softball team in a bid to learn a new sport. We’re based at the International Baseball Centre in Ashbourne which is a fantastic facility. The comradery is addictive, and the social aspect isn’t so bad! I also help coach the kid’s baseball team when I can.
Recently, I’ve decided to revive my childhood ambition of learning to fly.
