About Me

Irish/British origin guy originally from Liverpool but am now living and working in London where I work in UX/Web Design

I spent ten months studying Applied Ethics in Sweden and also a year teaching English in Taiwan. I also spent 6 amazing months traveling across India, as well as the Philippines, Nepal, Thailand and Myanmar .

I have been trying to learn Spanish and also Swedish... but, alas, with limited success! Spanish - A2/B1 and Swedish - A2 level. Currently hugely interested in learning Sanskrit - both written and verbal.

Thankful to the CS community and hoping to host other surfers when I no longer live w/ housemates.

Deja el pasado atrás y disfruta el presente :)
