I was born in Saudi Arabia in 1979. I graduated with a first class degree in Natural Sciences from Trinity College Dublin (Ireland) in 2002. I then lived in Australia and worked in aerial photography, before returning to Ireland to work in the environmental sector. In 2007, I moved to the UK to undertake an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication. I graduated with a distinction and top of my class. Since then I have been working freelance in London and abroad on assignments and self-initiated projects.
My background in earth sciences has heavily influenced my working practice. Energy, sustainability and the environment are central themes that run through my work.
My images have been exhibited in the UK and abroad at such location as: The Whitechapel Gallery (UK), Somerset House (London), The Royal West of England Academy, Krane Kalman Gallery (UK), AOP Gallery(UK), SALT Institute for Documentary Studies (USA), Galerie Huit (Les Rencontres d'Arles) & FOTO8 Gallery (London)
My images have also been published widely, such as GEO, The Guardian, The Independent, The New Review, Creative Review, The Irish Times, Libération Newspaper, Foam Magazine, Le Temps, Wired Magazine, Hotshoe, The British Journal of Photography and New Internationalist Magazine.
