The first thing you should know is that I’m not an expert on anything. I don’t have all the answers. I’m often mistaken.
I was born and raised near Waterford City in Ireland. I was extremely shy all the way into adulthood, but I was able to overcome that by taking a leap. In 2007, after a lot of effort, I landed an American work visa and went to live in New Orleans for three years. I picked that city because my favorite basketball team played there. I wanted nothing more than to watch and write about them, and I was able to live that dream.
Eventually I moved on from sports and became interested in personal development. I experimented with a vegetarian diet and ended up vegan (then quit). I joined Toastmasters and won a contest. I started this website. I realized that good enough wasn’t good enough so I quit my 9-to-5 job, left New Orleans and moved back to Ireland.
Then I spent 44 months traveling around the world without flying, visiting 37 countries along the way.
