I have been with Rentokil Ireland as Technical Manager since 2006 where I have supported the business in Technical, Quality and Health and Safety related areas. Before working with Rentokil I had a great time in academia where I got to play with dung fungi, timber decay fungi, wood boring insects, bacteria, biological control organisms and nematodes in a variety of laboratory and field-based research projects in the area of the Built Environment, Forestry, Ecological and the Food Industry. Its not all pests and books with me as I love my music and sport. I sing in a choir, play the guitar and Bodhrán, and have been known to croak out a few tunes after a beer or two. Although I enjoy all sports, I am a keen follower of Rugby, which I used to play for many years, and I currently play cricket for a local Dublin club.
