Me, myself, I, mé féin agus mise.

Writing about oneself is always difficult.
I have a very good life!

I'm an academic, graphic designer and writer living in New York. Somehow these strands intersect with one another like a braid. 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?

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 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 weaves 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 moved from Dublin, Ireland, to New York in 1993.
