Bio

A thirtysomething-year-old citizen of Ireland, living in Dublin, Ireland.

Education: Leaving Certificate; and Diploma in Information Systems from Trinity College, Dublin.

He has worked in IT since 1997, starting off as a programmer of front ends for enterprise databases, and currently holds the role of Network Manager in a startup organisation, where he started recently, but unfortunately a frustrating couple of months too late to have a say in what enterprise-level software would be used.

Unexplained and apparently random kdljfsolh like tljhy4875dohf are the fault of his cats.

He will now stop writing about himself in the third person.

Joined

I joined Citizendium on 24th April, 2007. I became a Constable on 29th July, 2007. I'm also a volunteer on CZ:Wiki-converting - which, in plain English, is a volunteer project to "wikify" submissions to CZ from plain-text formats for those uncomfortable with (or without the time to learn) WikiMedia code.

Areas of interest

Various - see Author Categories below. I'll be mainly working on articles relating to Ireland (the country and the island).
