Taken in Prague, Spring 2011
Taken on a plan ride in transit to Toulouse. From Toulouse I would have taken a train to the small village of Soreze, but I was never able to find the train. Instead I had about a €250 cab ride to my destination. It was the most enjoyable €250 cab ride of all time. The…… Continue reading Picture: Paris from a plane
Taken by my father on a trip to the fatherland in the 1980s. This stunning pictures captures a life that is slowly fading away in Ireland. A journal and more pictures from the trip can be found here.
My Ma just showed me the journal that she kept along the ride. Notice as well some of the great pictures. My favourite is the one of the two Irish men with the bicycle. Interestingly, my parents visited Trinity College Dublin (where I now teach and research). One of the pictures is where I often…… Continue reading Personal: The time my Ma and Dad went to Ireland (circa 1980)

I’m at home, relaxing, with all my books, surrounded by so much potential knowledge that I’m really not even sure where to begin. Overwhelming at times, as you could imagine.
One of my favourite aspects of Dublin is the evening time in spring and summer, when the sun is still out at 9:30, even 10:00, where I can enjoy the European ‘beer garden’ atmosphere at my home in the Liberties. On this occasion, Melony and I decided to try something new – some homemade pizza, of course…… Continue reading Homemade pizza
I’ve just created a new page to showcase some of the photographs I’ve taken throughout the course of my travels since 2007. You can check it here or see above.
I’ve done my fair share of traveling since graduating from college in 2007, from researching around the U.S. for one year with Ambassador Ahmed, to my own personal adventures throughout Europe and eastern Asia. I’ve been to some amazing places, from the Château de Padiès in Southern France, to the hills of Honolulu, to the famous…… Continue reading Photo-journal documenting trip to Athens and Santorini
Oia is a small village on the northern tip of Santorini island. It’s a famous spot for its sunset. Indeed, that was clear when the people around me started applauding when the sun was gone.
Once upon a time, I was a pretty lethal striker on the soccer pitch. When I was about 9 or 10, I had something like 6 goals in one game. It’s a true story. You can ask my dad. He wouldn’t lie. I ‘retired’ from the game when I was about 13, right before I…… Continue reading Playing soccer back in the day
If you’re a Ph.D. student, like myself, you know how precious free time is, and you know how infrequently you find it. One of my adjustments for year two of the Ph.D. process is to find, and indeed make, time for myself away from the critical thinking, writing, and fieldwork. It hasn’t been easy, but…… Continue reading Doolin, Ireland as you’ve never seen it before
