My Resume / Curriculum Vitae

In brief, I qualified as a medical doctor in 1986 (UCD, Dublin), spent 5 years as a psychiatrist in Hackney (East London), moved sideways into the Pharmaceutical Industry for 20 years (1996-2016), have run my own consultancy business since 2000, dabbled in professional acting for 4 years (2000-2004), and discovered genealogy in 2005. Since my first DNA test in 2009, I have become addicted to genetic genealogy and now lecture about it all around the world.

As a genetic genealogist, I am engaged in several research projects, including:

I lecture nationally and internationally on DNA-related topics.

I write regular articles on genetic genealogy for several magazines – British Connections, Irish Roots, Irish Lives Remembered. I have written two 68-page magazine supplements:

I organise the DNA Lectures at the annual Back to Our Past exhibition in Dublin (each October) and in Belfast (each February). I also helped organise the DNA Lectures at Who Do You Think You Are – Live (2013-2016) and have chaired the DNA Lectures at Family Tree Live (London, 2019). I also manage the associated dedicated YouTube Channels:

I am a thought leader within the genetic genealogy community and have advanced the science of genetic genealogy through my blogs, presentations, YouTube channels, and Facebook groups:

I work as a professional genetic genealogist, helping people interpret their DNA results and identifying next steps they could take to advance their own research. I specialise in helping people with Irish Brick Walls to use DNA effectively to break through them. I also work with adoptees and birth parents who are trying to identify their birth families (most of them referrals from Barnardos and TUSLA).
