About Vicky

I am a writer, an author and an organisational consultant.  I love to take photographs.
I live near the sea in East Sussex, England, and on Gartan Lake in Donegal, Ireland.  I am a New Yorker, at heart.
These are the things that frame my window on the world:
I was born in Eritrea in East Africa -- my mother was a New Yorker and my father was from Sussex.
I am a feminist and a Catholic.
I love art, the theatre, walking, swimming, driving, cooking, my family and friends in several countries.
I love to laugh and to dance.  I love to travel, to be on the move.
I am fascinated by politics in the UK, Ireland and the US.

I am committed to a systems and complexity paradigm; I love to think, to make connections....
This is my new website for a new decade:  it aims to showcase my passions and projects, to connect my past, present and future; England, Ireland and New York; writing, consultancy and photography


Current projects

Writing. Consultancy. Photography.
