Hallo! I’m an Irish/Malaysian TCK, currently living in Australia completing my tertiary education. I finished my bachelor degree in Media and Communications, majoring in film, at UNSW. After three years in Sydney I moved to Melbourne to make the most out of my temporary visa and explore what I’ve often heard referred to as Sydney’s younger, more attractive and much more popular sister.
My first true realisation of what I wanted to do in life was to be an ethnomusicologist. This would satisfy my love and anxious need for a constant change in environment, as well as encourage the habit I’ve acquired of running (and for a significant while on a failed project, skateboarding) around with a giant microphone and headphones. My more recent calling, after doing some freelance work, is to do sound design and effects editing for sci-fi animations. Having done my fair share of dialogue editing for various short films, crossing into fantasy Foley territory proved ridiculously more satisfying.
My aim for honours is to focus specifically on audio practice and perhaps figure out what directions I want my abilities to take me in. In my spare time I’ll take up aerial again and join a circus, become a professional foosball player, master circuit bending and continue looking after my tropical fish, one day adding a salt water tank full of seahorses, starfish and anemone to the family.
