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...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Besides being the greatest computer game visual artist in my small
world... (well according to my niece and nephew). Sports have
always been a larger part of my life, as I grew up a competitive
swimmer and later a water polo player, recently I have returned to
masters swimming, funny I don't remember it being this rough... I
love nearly all activities, except for jumping out of airplanes,
which still has me mystified? I have a passion for anything with
wheels, auto racing, classics, and the vehicle that sends my Mother
to Church, the motorcycle, but the real attraction is the locations
and people I meet.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Nothing gives me greater pleasure than falling off things, from
horses to mountain bikes to St Bernards, though that was a long
time ago and no animals were hurt in the process. However, I did
break my arm on a scooter, during my first week at work here, for a
motorcyclist that is pretty embarrassing!

Food: Everything, came from a large family of boys so I never had
the chance to be picky. Indian and Moroccan are at present my
favorites, though that changes depending on the last restaurant I
have visited or I have had to courage to prepare myself...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Well my dogs take up 2, and that leaves me leaving out 2 of my
family? Even though they are all 6,000 miles away we are still very
close, thank you Skype
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his
punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Talking to friends and coworkers over some of Dublin's finest or
trying out some restaurant.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Don't really hide much, so I can't really think of anything...
though I do have a fondness for cats, but I'll deny that is anybody
