Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
21 happy years have past since first I skipped off the plane from
the Emerald Isle, smiling at the photo of Bill, welcoming me to
LAX. Eagerly leaving Ireland’s dampness in exchange for
California’s warmth. I was excited and embraced this great country,
for all it had to offer and have enjoyed a fun and creative career
in the classical animation industry in Los Angeles until it went
like the Dodo and then travelled up the coast to San Francisco to
work as an VFX animator in the video game industry, pressing
buttons rather than pushing my beloved pencil. I can't claim to be
an avid gamer but love the medium because it constantly challenges
me artistically and mentally, I guess I am one of the fortunate
ones that actually are excited to head off to work each morning.
Thankfully I have received a big thumbs up from my nieces and
nephew, yes they are my career guidance counselors and can easily
kick my butt at any video game. Just recently I have relocated to
Troy, NY, which offers a whole new adventure.
I am kind of stepping backwards in my Grandfather's well worn old
shoes here, as he spent 5 good years rebuilding the whole of San
Francisco city, early in the last century by himself!;) I was once
told some Blarney that while he was here, he painted the Golden
Gate Bridge, which would have been 10 years before it existed?
Maybe there was a Version #1 back then? I'm still trying to figure
that one out? He would have rebuilt New York and Boston too if they
had burnt down during his travels...
My ideal life would be split between here and Ireland, never gets
easy being so far away from family, thankfully they all love to
I am Irish, artistic, oh and kind of smart...
