Brand Journalist | Cycling Analyst
I grew up listening to the tales of my father’s experience as a professional bike racer in Ireland. I use my inherited gift of storytelling and experience in competitive cycling as a sportswriter, cycling analyst and host of the live interactive web show, TourChats for Cycling Fans.
During my career in sports journalism, I became a social media innovator developing a following among cycling fans as well as industry insiders.
As an editor and journalist I respond quickly to developing stories and create engagement. I cultivated a following for ROAD Magazine as well as my own personal brand by interacting with people at cycling events and through several social media channels.
As Editorial Director I set the tone, developed content strategy and managed contributors. As a freelance writer my clients have ranged from media publications to marketing agencies to individual athletes.
I currently write a regular column at the international site RoadCycling.com, contribute to Paved Magazine as the Senior Competitive Correspondent, have articles appearing in numerous national publications, and appear on radio and television programs as an expert on cycling.
