I’m an Irish and Italian Catholic American and native of Needham, Massachusetts. At various points in my life I have been a scholar, writer, filmmaker, photographer, occasional poet, basketball player, and wild rover. Currently I’m finishing my PhD in sociology at Trinity College Dublin. My research interests include diaspora, culture, and identity. I have a beautiful girlfriend who I love dearly. My favorite place in the world is north Clare, Ireland, in particular the villages of Lisdoonvarna, Doolin, Liscannor, and Lahinch. I’m an avid Boston Celtics fan and lover of Italian food. The most important things in my life are family, faith, and honor. I use this blog to share things about my existence.
