In short

  • Student Union President of the Dublin College of Catering, Cathal Brugha St., Dublin 1989-1990. Made friends, lost them, then made them again.

    My only other claim to fame is being associated with some of the finest, funniest and sincerest people I've ever come across. And they're all here on WEbook.

    Unfortunately, due to the demands on my time by outside forces (life and stuff), I feel I have to decline further invitations to poetry projects. In all fairness, I'm not really that qualified anyway. I apologise in advance.

    Thank you all sincerely.

My Favorites: Reading and Writing

  • "His Dark Materials", by Philip Pullman; "The Stand" and "It", by Stephen King; and anything by Stephen Donaldson. I'm also a big fan of most crime thrillers and anything from that genre.
