My twitter, if anyone is interested in following.

100 followers, so about me…


So I hit the hundred follower mark there a few minutes ago. Not much at all but I appreciate that a hundred people are interested in what I’m interested in so thank you. At this stage I should probably let you guys have more of an insight into my life. So here it goes.

I’m quite the opinionated young lad, especially when it comes to freedom of information. I believe that information should be free for everyone to access at all times. It allows for people to develop and educate themselves in more ways than people realize. I’m such a strong advocate of free information, so much so that I would literally die for it. Being only nineteen years old I don’t have much experience in regards to life and how the world works but I do like to teach myself on how these systems work. One of my main goals is merely to just understand how and where humanity is going, also how it came into existence. When I say “came into existence” I don’t mean “where did humanity come from?” I’m talking about how society itself formed and how humans begins to work together to create communities that aren’t primal, beastial or animalistic, well some say humans are, which can be true in some regards, more on that another time. As an anti-theist I have no affiliations with religion or any kind of deity, higher beings or otherwise, I’m a man of science.

Currently I’m studying digital media, in my free time I study various forms of programming and the architecture of technology, also a bit of HCI/ID on the side. I enjoy educating myself, education is evolution through my eyes. In regards to digital media I completely and inarguably enjoy it to the highest degree. I get major satisfaction from completing assignments and making things that make people smile (animations for example). I also get quite a large ┬ásense of fulfillment out of completing assignments or making something that’s really innovative. Another small tidbit of information about myself is that i teach kids about technology once or twice a week, voluntarily, should go down a treat on a CV.

That’s really all i can say at the minute, thanks so much if you read this far down and thank you all for following, i really do appreciate it. Over the months of May, June, July and August, if any of you need a 3D modeler, graphic designer, web developer or anything that relates to digital media done, just leave me a message, I’ll be more than happy to do it free of charge!

Thanks guys!

So I started.


So I started working with the kids the other day. They’re extremely enthusiastic. I wound up making several stop motions with them also. One girl called Alex, she’s only about 4 years old came up with a very ambitious claymation idea. She wanted to create an underwater scene. She sat for a solid hour making fish out of colored clay. By the time she was finished it took nearly everyone in the room to help her create the scene. It was adorable in a way that someone so young had such an ambitious idea and the drive to finish it. Thats the thing with digital/multimedia, it ushers vast amounts of creativity in all ages. Unfortunately here in Ireland, computers or anything of the sort is not included in primary or secondary level education. This seriously needs to change. In this day and age kids should be thought from a young age how to use various kinds of technology. There’s so many people I’m seeing getting left behind because they haven’t had any education in technology. I was lucky to have been able to teach myself. This is something that I’d love to change in this country, it’s more or less one of my main goals at the moment.
