I have enjoyed a high-profile media career across all aspects of the industry for the past 25 years. I have worked in newspapers, television, magazines, have tutored in media at University and am now applying my knowledge and skills to corporate brands and companies. I have specialised in sport and have headed up the media operations for major events and competitions in Australia and overseas. I would love to help mentor and guide dedicated and aspiring professionals with some of the intel and experience I have gained throughout my career.
I would like to mentor screenwriters at the beginning of their careers in the art and business of writing and bringing film and TV scripts to market.
I have been a film and television writer for ten years and a script consultant for five years. I run a script-development consultancy, offering critiquing, editing and proof-reading to feature, short-film and Television writers. I have worked with over thirty writers on over three hundred script and treatments. I also have taught screenwriting in colleges around Dublin and 1-to-1 to individual student.
Mentoring sessions are 30 minutes long and introduce the principle elements of writing and selling screenplays.
My career in television, health journalism, and publishing started when I decided I no longer wanted to sit at a desk all day. Instead, I crafted a personal brand as a “herb nerd” and set about using my qualifications in a new way: to communicate to a larger audience the benefits of nutrition, herbal medicine, and preventative health interventions.
As a mentor, I can assist in developing the skills necessary for a career in media. We will look at how you first develop a strong personal brand, how you can use social media to increase awareness, and how to then transition into mainstream media. I’ll also assist with your written and verbal communication skills as they relate to the industry, and — perhaps most importantly — coach mentees on how to attract commercial deals and turn their personal brand into a profitable career.
