About

I’m an Irish creative practitioner based in London, working with my partner Bart Rzeznik under the name Take Courage.

My own interests are reflected in my diverse experiences—small branding studios, in-house design at large corporations, educational spaces and research-oriented speech and language collectives. I’m intrigued by the role design and creativity play in dysfluent spaces.
