Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! Ah the dreaded self-summary. Brace yourself! I'm originally
from just outside of Dublin, Ireland (though I wasn't born there)
but I'm currently living in London. I spend most of my days working
in film doing computer graphics, and in my free time I enjoy
climbing (bouldering mainly), going to gigs, writing/recording
music, reading and watching movies.
If I had to describe myself in a few words I think I'd say I'm easy
going. I'm a big fan of the "don't sweat the small stuff" attitude.
Life's too short to get stressed about every little thing that goes
I always enjoy trying new things, which London is great for! And
would love to meet someone like minded to share the experience
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love learning new things and enjoy a good challenge. I started
rock climbing about a year and a half ago and I love it. So, much
of my time is currently spent climbing stuff... or trying to at
least. I really enjoy both the mental and physical aspects of it,
and I could bore you to death talking for hours about it here so
I'm going to stop now before I get started. Suffice to say I like
it a lot.
I recently decided to jump on the craft beer bandwagon and started
brewing my own stuff. It's a surprisingly cool mix of
chemistry/biology and can be really rewarding (in that you get
awesome beer at the end). Plus I enjoy nerding out talking to other
brewer's about their setup and brewing process. It's quite fun
Besides that I'm reasonably happy with where my "career" has taken
me work wise. Working in film can be quite rewarding (I've got
credits in a couple movies), but I'm not sure if it's what I want
to do for the rest of my life. I am considering moving on to
greener (read: warmer) pastures at some stage. My work is fairly
flexible and there's lots of opportunities to move around, so I
don't really want to stay in any one place for too long right
I'm really just trying to have as much fun as I can at this stage
in my life while I'm still (relatively) young and free and don't
have any crushing financial obligations to tie me down.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Being Irish I pronounce the letter 'R' like A 'or' B, rather than
when a dentist says "say aaaaah". I also say things like "yerman"
and "yerone" which perplexes a lot of people.

Hard to pick a favourite book really. I've read a lot of old sci-fi
books by Asimov, Niven etc. Mainly because my Dad had a big stack
of them when I was younger. I also enjoy reading non-fiction like
biographies and such. The last book I read that I really enjoyed
was The Wise Man's Fear. I ashamed to admit that I've never read
any Terry Pratchet. Remedying that at the moment with "Guards,
Guards!", which I'm really enjoying.
Despite working in film I don't actually watch a ton of movies.
Argo was probably the best movie I've seen this year. Low budget
b-movies on The Horror Channel are always good for a laugh. Spoofs
like Naked Gun and Airplane crack me up.
I try not to watch too much tv these days as my free time is
limited. Been working my way through The Soprano's recently. Yes,
yes I know I am way late to the party on that one. Looking forward
to the next series of Game Of Thrones. I always have time for an
episode of The Simpsons. Blackadder, Bottom, Louie, Archer,
anything Graham Linehan has been involved with.
I've a fairly broad taste in music, but I mainly listen to hard
rock or metal (Graspop anyone?). I've been playing guitar and drums
since I was a kid so I enjoy anything with good musicianship.
Grunge, jazz and cheesy 80s stuff also regularly make it into my
playlist. Just to list off a few of my favourites - Tool, Megadeth,
Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Ghost, Gojira, Primordial.
There's not a lot I wont eat. Love Italian food, can't beat a good
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good beer.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where to go on holiday next. What to do at the weekend. Life, the
universe, and everything. How they get the figs in fig rolls??
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Recovering! Out having a drink with some friends, maybe out at a
gig, maybe in watching a movie. It varies a lot.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Ehh... I once befriended a group of homeless people while highly
intoxicated? They were nice guys! I gave them some money out of
sympathy, but they then convinced me to go on a trek to find some
sleeping bags for them, which obviously did not end in success it
being the middle of the night and me being quite drunk. I tried eh?
