Work History

freelance subtitler of television programmes

community TV

From August 2008

August 2008 - Present

Throughout this time - including the period when I was undertaking the Deaf Studies course at TCD - I have been working as a freelance subtitler of television programmes for the Deaf in Ireland, working for a number of community TV stations.

• Liaising with programme makers and TV station commissioning editors to ensure that subtitle files are created and added to finished programmes for broadcast on Irish TV stations.
• Editing spoken language and putting it into a written form that conforms to the conventions of subtitling as developed by the BBC over the last three decades.

January 2007 - November 2013

I continue to subtitle on a freelance basis. It's far from regular, but handy enough when it turns up.

Journalist and sub-editor

Independent Newspapers

Writing articles and copywriting commercial features for all Independent titles (Irish Independent, Sunday Independent, Evening Herald). Writing news features. Sub-editing features pages on all the above titles.
I remain a dab hand at graphic design, and still turn a decent sentence.



In Dublin magazine

In this period I wrote for In Dublin magazine, Sunday Business Post, Irish Independent, and a variety of building industry trade magazines operating in the Dublin area. I also wrote all the copy for the Century Homes website and wrote and directed a radio advert for the same company.
