I'm a Dubliner who loves beautiful places, spaces, music, history, art and food. I adore local places with long histories and like to get to know them. my desert island foods would be crumbly blue cheese on an oat biscuit, butter and whiskey wrapped fresh lobster and cork dry gin with slices of homegrown cucumber and ice. i cant live without good coffee and wouldn't even try. I'm currently reading Swallows and Amazons with my kids and i love it for its sense of freedom and escape. My favourite musicians are plenty - Queen, Van Morrisson, The Mumfords, Daft Punk. I believe in keeping life simple - and I fundamentally believe - the simpler, the better.
