Ever onwards and upwards, maybe sideways, but never backwards!
When not working, I am...
I’m listening to Talk Radio (or presenting it).

A Bit About Me
I was named in the top 35 women in crypto by Techround in May 2022, which was swiftly followed by being named one of the hot crypto women to follow by Benzinga in the same month.
In September 2021, I was a finalist in the prestigious CryptoAM UK awards in the education section.
In August, I was named as one of the UK’s Most Influential Women in Tech by Computer Weekly in 2021. I am a tireless advocate for Women in Blockchain, the eradication of homelessness, and income equality.
After the Bitcoin Miami conference, I signed a contract with Brock Pierce, James Heckman, and David Bailey to port Blockleaders news site onto their new censorship-resistant media platform.
On International Women’s Day 2021, I was nominated as one of 100 global women in leadership awards in COVID reflecting the 30-plus years of career spans across a global stage including Sydney, Singapore, Kyiv, Austin, Muscat, Columbo, Dubai, Capetown, Liberland, Malta, Amsterdam, Vienna, Dublin, and London.
In June 2020 I was awarded Blockchain Journalist of the year by Uptrends (then the largest blockchain social platform). In 2019 I was nominated for the national Irish IMRO radio awards, made the top 100 Global Blockchain Leaders list by Lattice,80, and was named AI and Blockchain Journalist of the Year at the CC Forum in London. In 2018 I was awarded the Order of Merit by the President of Liberland. I am a passionate advocate for blockchain, a seasoned professional in fintech, and an internationally recognised champion for equality – whether in homelessness, gender, or the law.
I changed the law in Ireland in 2014 and I am a proud former European Parliamentary candidate
(as an independent).
I am a co-founder and editor-in-chief of Blockleaders.io. I am the author of more than 18 books. I am also a freelance journalist for many publications including CoinDesk, CityAM, CoinTelegraph, CryptoSlate News, Hackernoon, The Irish Times, and ITN.
