Biography

I am a business and a social entrepreneur.

I've been fortunate to have worked with good organisations who have involved and committed individuals in progressive charities, not for profits, more than profits, cooperatives, partnerships and businesses.

I am passionate for and committed to 222 Ireland, a simple three digit freephone number for 24/7 non-emergency services for social, health, educational and civic services. We will be 'One Less Barrier to Help'

Social Enterprise, Cooperative Development and Small Business in Ireland are my main focus. I'm a strong believer in working together to face shared problems.

I enjoy youth and community work with a focus on outdoor education and the value of film and video in this area of work

'Safety, fun and learning'. Expand, see more, push beyond your boundaries and do things that make you happy.

"Trust your passion, identify your dreams, and find the courage to share them with others, no matter how many times they call you a fool. If your vision has merit, no matter how impossible it may seem, someone will recognise it and make it come true." Bill Strickland
