I am ... the founder of a startup called UsIrish www.UsIrish.com and also writing interactive digital fairytales and coding #edTech www.demifay.com
My project is ... An endeavour with a twofold purpose: To promote Irish Culture/Language and network Irish Artists! Download our Free App: www.UsIrish.com

A little bit about me:

I am an Artist and Children's Author with a passion for education and learning. I am a bit of a polymath, love coding, graphic and web design. Education: I completed a MSc in Tech management (Aug. 2015) and as part of my thesis developed a practical four step program for SME's to apply innovation as a sustained practice. I do some consultancy around that 4StepFwd process working with local Micro-enterprises. UsIrish.com I am currently networking Irish Creatives into an eCommerce community, and establish an easy identity for Diaspora markets. I'm looking to facilitate authentic gifts created for purpose with diversity and choice in design and detailing. I welcome interest from artists/craftspeople living and working in Ireland who enjoy working on commissions. Demifay.com I have recently released an interactive ibook (Irish and English versions) working in cross-border collaboration with Digital Media Choices ( a fab non-profit CIC). The Sunbeam Path is the first in the Demifay Series. Book II is in development with the illustrator, and there are #EdTech games and learning resources currently being developed. An Integrated Ambition: The stories and Tech developments are all part of the UsIrish ethos celebrating our Culture, Mythology and Folklore. We are the first to introduce Irish Language into this new technology. My Freebie UsIrish App has the stories of 18 Irish Heroes/Gods and is also an Ogham translator with comprehensive information on Druidic Treelore. As well as delivering cultural stories through such innovation and new technology I see UsIrish as a way of networking Irish Artists. I envisage bringing my 4StepsFwd process into play as we develop Agile, or fluid working process. This may take several iterations in order to respond to market requirements but the focus is on contemporary arts, magic, myth, culture and Irish heritage.
