Five things

Five things you might not know about me:

  1. I went to Art college to study Industrial Design, deciding not to do CS. I loved drawing, especially inking and cartoon. Years ago, I got to hang out for a while with Dave Sim at Lenny Henry's 40th birthday. He drew me a drunk Cerebus on the back of a till receipt.
  2. I came to software late, and for many years I had no interest in computers whatsoever. I wrote my first computer program at 14, and my second one at 26. My vocation is still a surprise to me.
  3. After leaving London, moving to Ireland was not my first choice, the US and Canada were.
  4. The singlemost important event of my life was becoming a father. Thrice.
  5. I have a signed copy of Now and Then by Joe Heller. When I worked in a bar we (the staff) and he drank a bottle of Macallans at the bar and watched someone else read his words from his book at the launch party for that book which he was at.
