I was born in Northern Ireland, a child of the Troubles but hidden away in the middle of the countryside able to watch Belfast burning from the top of our coal bunker. It was later as a doctor working in Belfast and in Derry that I experienced the cold, brutal, blood stained violence of terrorism. Music, writing, the commitments in my life and love arose from those combined experiences. Enjoy.
I am a paediatric neurologist working in the UK. I work in the NHS and also do medico legal work. I present nationally and internationally on how the brain learns. Central to my life is my desire to create through music, wiring, photography and with the simple acts that create a life.
