I am fascinated by the quality of light at dawn in Milltown Cemetery, West Belfast. For those who do not know it, the entrance to the cemetery is at the junction of Falls Road and Glen Road, with the cemetery itself sloping downwards, towards the M1 motorway. The sun rises over the silhouetted horizon of East Belfast, and shines its first light on the Divis Mountain to the west.
I help to manage Slugger by taking care of the site as well as running our live events. My background is in business, marketing and IT. My politics tend towards middle-of-the-road pragmatism, I am not a member of any political party. Oddly for a member of the Slugger team, I am not that interested in daily politics, preferring to write about big ideas in society. When not stuck in front of a screen, I am a parkrun Run Director.
