where do I start.
I was born on a cold February morning...
Next thing I knew I was studying Graphic Design at Limerick School of Art & Design [LSAD] and quickly followed the trail of Dick Whittington hot footing it to London. Working in Graphic Design agencies at first before becoming a freelancer expanding my skillset and exploring other creative media.
Digital Audio Production.
I had always dabbled with music, singing and playing guitar. As an outlet from my day job I formed and collapsed a couple of bands [nothing you would of heard of] and freelanced as a Sound Engineer. From this process I discovered Digital Audio and soon became more interested in the instrument [first the Atari and then onto a multi capable 286 PC] rather than the noise it was making. I still am a total nerd at heart when it comes to Digital audio production advancements.
Brings together my two loves, old and new, the graphic image and computers. I find it very satisfying. Structuring the code to make a page look good. Always evolving, learning and improving. I am always consciously trying to keep things simple.
As I got into using a computer fairly early on and used it 14 hours a day, 7 days a week for about a decade, so, I had my fair share of PC problems as a result of this "Hands-on Training" I became quite knowledgeable in all things PC. So much so that when I re-located to Ireland to live and work I opened my own PC Shop [sales/repairs/services] which I still own and run. For more info goto BantryBayComputers
I'm a keen photographer. I still treat it as more of a hobby than a tool of my trade which I feel keeps it unbound and carefree. Most of my work related photos get processed through [Adobe] PhotoShop as I feel the-end-justifies-the-means when it come to getting the right image for the job. I currently use two Cameras, a Nikon D40 and the very excellently quirky Fuji X100.
