Me, myself, I, mé féin agus mise.
Writing about oneself is always difficult.
I have a very good life!
I'm an academic and graphic designer living in New York.
I teach and write in the Irish language and also run a graphics studio; these somewhat different strands very often intersect with one another.
I have always been an advocate for An Ghaeilge, the native language of Ireland. I love the smooth sound and poetic nature of it and how it is woven through Irish history. As a child I wanted to learn more, as an adult I found the language waiting for me. I've experienced first-hand how language can shape how one interacts with the world.
That sounds a little weird but it is nonetheless true.
I love Irish language, clean design, color, dogs, cats, cocktails, baking, yoga, French, skiing, sailing and books in no particular order.
I like to play with words and dogs.
I moved from Dublin, Ireland, to New York in 1993.
Nowadays I split my time between Westchester County NY, the spectacular Adirondack region of the North Country in New York State and the beautiful coast of Maine.
How lucky am I?
