Full time Media-Journalism Producer / Production Broadcast Engineering Content Creation

Personal Summary

My Name is Michael Kirwan, a recently graduated Media Production student from the University of Sunderland. Through my years of education, I have made two radio documentaries and a radio drama which has heightened my passion for all things radio. I have a great understanding of a range of audio equipment with a keen expertise in microphones. I am trained in using the Adobe Suite software, mainly Audition, Premiere Pro, Photoshop, and After Effects.  In my spare time, I edit the highly popular James Bond Radio podcast which has been running for seven years, and the Bond & Banter Podcast. I hope you consider my application as I feel this is a job that suits me well. Having previously worked for OpenTempo Radio in Waterford, I have experience in a station environment. I am also keen to help new students as I love teaching people and passing on knowledge I have learned in my years of education.
