I am originally from Northern Ireland, but have lived more than half my life in the U.S. I work in an academic setting. I have come to a point in my life where I would like to devote my personal time to photography. I have much to learn both technically and how best to express myself. Having a service such as Blurb helps to satisfy that need to express myself in a tangible way that is at least satisfying for me and hopefully gives pleasure to others too.
