Web projects

My first exposure to multimedia was while working as an editor for Encarta Encyclopedia, in London, from 1997 to 1999. Although my main duties were editorial — reviewing articles in ancient and medieval European history — I picked up enough technical skills along the way that when I returned to Dublin in 1999 at the peak of the dot-com bubble I moved into a new career in web development.

I worked as a designer, programmer and project manager at Aró from 2000 to 2003, and after returning to university became involved in a number of academic web projects. Some of my work is listed below.

Between 2000 and 2003 I worked as a developer and project manager on very many websites, both large and small, while working at Aró. Clients included County Enterprise Boards, Fáilte Ireland, the Institute of Public Administration, the Irish Internet Association, most of the Regional Tourism Authorities and Tourism Ireland. (A decade or so is an age in a fast-evolving medium, and all of these sites have since been redeveloped.)
