Declan is an American-born Irish film-maker. During his formative years studying at Maynooth University, he worked many late nights in order to save money and move to the US to start his Masters in Directing at the School of Visual Arts NYC. This instilled in him a dependable work ethic and a desire to succeed. His versatility has seen him through many odd-jobs over the years; from his humble beginnings as a cleaner in an Airbnb Cottage, to a live-in caregiver in Silicon Valley; Or most recently, as on over-worked waiter in TriBeCa. Declan displays recurring themes within his work such as isolation, questioning social norms and unconventional love. When not at work or in school you can probably find Declan happily drinking overpriced beer in any techno-driven nightclub.
