I plan to continue working on a contract/consultancy basis in 2017. If you need an experienced product designer to help plan, design and get your next iteration or new idea out the door, get in touch.
After trying on NYC, I returned to Dublin and started working on a consultancy basis. Helped Good Travel Software ship a new product and currently working with WeddingDates on a new version of their management platform.
In September 2015, I said goodbye Engine Yard. Focused full-time on Rebase for a month, which was a happy success. Took some time out to travel a little, recover, work on my portfolio and personal projects.
Landed a job at X Communications, an agency whose work I had admired for years. Starting as a front-end developer, I learn my trade as as a UX designer eventually leading a number of different projects.
Graduated from Dublin City University with a B.Sc. (Hons) in Multimedia. Got my first "real job" as a junior web developer at Xwerx in the Digital Depot.
Completed a fantastic, hands-on nine-month internship at Intuition e-learning. Returned to university to complete my final year and thesis project, the equivalent of an iPhone app for guiding art students around the National Gallery for PDA.
Moved to Dublin and for an internship at EmergeSmart e-learning company. Meant to last a week but I stayed for the entire summer until it was time to start college.
Finally persuaded my parents we needed a home computer. Shortly after, I decided we should have the internet. The large phone bills went unnoticed for a number of months and I started learning HTML and trying to make a website.
Born at Christmas in 1984, I grew up on a dairy farm on the west coast of Ireland in the heart of The Burren, Co. Clare. Like @ev, I believe I got my strong work ethic from growing up on a farm where "working nine to five" was – and remains – an alien concept.
