We are both born in Dublin and work in the art world. I am director of the main organisation that looks after the rights of artists, as well as being a curator and writer. In 2009 I was co-curator for the Slovenian National Pavilion, and have also had other independent projects as part of the Irish National Pavilion. My partner is an artist and has had projects in Venice during the Biennale, as well as exhibiting internationally in the Whitney Museum, New York. We have both lived abroad for extended periods in the US and the UK, and in my case some time in the Far East.
