About a year ago Melony and I visited a beautiful place called Glencolumbkille, Ireland. We found the beautiful Maghera Beach on a memorable day trip.
I’m off to London this afternoon for the second time in as many weeks for the Journey into America screening and panel discussion at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London. I’m very happy to have my lady, Mel, joining me this time around. She’s exciting for the thrill of it…… Continue reading To London again for SOAS screening
Here’s a quick glimpse into a pretty exciting trip over the next several days: On Wednesday morning, I have to teach a tutorial on naturally occurring data. The tutorial will be packed because I’ve asked the students from the Thursday and Friday tutorials to attend the Wednesday session. The reason? I’m heading on a 14:10…… Continue reading Personal: A quick and fairly significant trip to London

I have finally edited the video that I captured when Mel and I went to visit the areas around Glencolumbkille in Donegal. I decided to use ‘Orange Sky’ by Alexi Murdoch as a backdrop to this short but sweet clip which, I hope, captures the serenity and grandeur of the area. At times the clip moves…… Continue reading Video: Road-trip to Maghera Beach and Port in Northwest Ireland (Over ‘Orange Sky’ by Alexi Murdoch)
From our trip to Glencolumbkille in Northwest Donegal, Ireland (June 2012). A breathtaking view on a windy little road. Truly spectacular and unforgettable.
I booked a flight back home to Boston in March 2012. My sister, the only person who knew of the booking, and I devised a clever plan to surprise my parents. I put together this short clip to ‘Lovely Allen’ by Holy Fuck. Watch the video and tell me whether you think Holy Fuck is…… Continue reading (Video) Surprising the hell out of my parents!
Mel and I decided to take a day trip to Dún Laoghaire, partly because we wanted to, but also because our buddy Robbie Fry (great photographer) had to give me a CD of pictures from an event last week. Will blog about that soon. Mel had been to Dún Laoghaire, but this was my first time. I…… Continue reading Day trip to Dún Laoghaire
I took this at Kadikoy, Turkey at the Sali Bazar in January 2012.
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 rented a cheap little car and was told ‘not to go off-roading’. But what did that mean? What is considered ‘off-roading’? These are two questions I certainly contemplated before taking the car down a dangerous path to the famous and isolated Kambia Beach in the middle-of-nowhere, Santorini. Would I make the car back up…… Continue reading My ‘Dirt road in Santorini’ video
I shot this on May 8th on a bright and sunny day in Athens. Of course I tipped him and asked for permission to film.
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
The title above means paradise in Greek. It’s where I’m at right now.
The first destination I visited was Syntigma Square. There were loads of young people gearing up for the protest which happens to be in a few hours. Huge flags and large ‘pow wow’ groups filled the area. I plan on watching it go down and catching it all on video. I feel another potential CNN…… Continue reading Travels: First reaction in Athens
I shot this in December 2011
On May 5th, I’m packing my bags, which will absolutely include one of my all-time favourites, Plato’s Dialogues, for a much needed vacation away from the cold and rainy (but still beautiful!) island of Ireland. It has been a hell of a few months with fieldwork and editing this Journal, so this trip couldn’t have…… Continue reading 8 spots I seek to visit around Greece
I was in Istanbul, Turkey for New Years 2012. One evening, whilst staying in a hostel in the ‘Old City’, a few of us were hanging around when a local young man, who happened to be living at the hostel, decided to play us a tune on his clarinet. Notice the slow pace in which…… Continue reading Clarinet in an Istanbul stairwell
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
