Overambitious troper studying creative writing at the National University of Ireland, Galway. I identify most strongly as a writer of fiction and poetry but I dabble in other media. I've only recently begun to get my work published before then, my writing was mainly found in TheSlenderManMythos. I maintain [[http://newageofabsurdity.wordpress.com/ a personal blog]] where I post whatever bits and pieces I feel don't belong anywhere else, so it's a pretty odd mix.

As well as creative writing, I have an intense love affair with literary studies, especially Old English poetry, which will hopefully be the subject of my PhD. My third great passion is competitive debating, in which I represent the Literary & Debating Society of NUIG. I also write journalism with [[http://collegepeople.ie College People]], [[http://thedailyshift.ie The Daily Shift]] and [[http://sin.ie SIN]], and serve as literature editor of the latter.

I like words, is what I'm saying.
