You have found your way here through either me telling you to check it out or from snooping on my website and either way is great!
As a young boy from the northside of Dublin growing up I always knew that entertainment, music and performance would be part of my career, although I did try many other paths getting to this point, I kept being dragged back to the arts in some way or another.
Performing on some of Ireland’s biggest stages and theatres from the age of 7/8, it gave me a buzz and that has never gone away. Now in my 30’s (woah that feels old), I still have that same buzz when producing a show, choreographing a routine or working on a new project with a team and that gives me reassurance that I am in the right place.
The arts and entertainment business isn’t easy though and since my first professional job as a choreographer for a new pop act in Dublin back in 2006 at the age of 16 it hasn’t all been plain sailing and I have had some tough moments that would test the best of them. I will come back to these in future posts but I’m trying to keep this one light!
In Ireland, this business is full of highs and lows but more importantly it’s full of great people and opportunities if you work hard and are a nice person.
Whether it be dance, acting, singing or other (a possible million other roles within the industry), stick to it, work every day on your craft and be nice. That’s the best advice anyone can give.
It’s a tough nut to crack in Ireland with such a small industry but it’s a very rewarding on and I’ve met some friends for life through work I’ve done in the past 15 years. I believe that your time is now, this moment, work hard for it and you will succeed and enjoy it.
I will be posting more industry tips, stories or my time working and pieces of my life here. Hope you can stick with me!
