Cillian is originally from Dublin, Ireland. He studied English and History in UCD and went on to do an MSc at Edinburgh University in 2014. Upon leaving Edinburgh, Cillian cried for a few weeks due to being back in Dublin (it’s not so bad really), but soon picked himself up and left for London!
Working with the meditation app Headspace for two years gave Cillian great experience and allowed him to deep-dive into meditation and explore mindfulness, which has really helped him stay grounded in a city like London! Cillian is also passionate about piano and has been playing music for many years. This interest in music, sound and mindfulness inevitably drew him towards now>press>play who use rich and colourful immersive soundscapes, narrative and imagination to engage children in learning. He has worked with them for just over 1 year and their altruistic values overlap with his own in a significant way.
Cillian is also obsessed with bouldering.
Head on over to the now>press>play stand and have a chat about what they do, or you can just talk to Cillian about climbing!
