Born and raised in Belfast, I dodged the bombs and bullets while taking an early interest in media, using the excuse of being senior editor for a student newsletter and annual magazine to skip classes for four consecutive years, and producing and editing video and audio as part of various media-related activities at the time.
After a while dabbling in Belfast radio, I now host a daily radio show and live near the Colorado River in western Arizona, a stone's throw from California where I also spend a lot of time.
My independent film production company is Hemet Productions, via which I and my fellow hatchetmen of the New World Order make documentaries, and partner with other filmmakers on movie projects.
I spend the rest of my time with a collection of misfits I call friends and family, jetskiing, boating, off-roading, dining and movie-watching.
Where it's all going I have no idea.
