A second-generation Irish immigrant born in Alaska, he retraced the path of his grandmother and settled near the family farm in County Clare more than a decade ago, immersing himself in the inspiring and soul-stirring natural beauty of Ireland.

When not exploring the Irish countryside, he enjoys cooking and introducing his Irish family to international cuisine during family lunches. All have survived so far.

He battles his addiction to news by sharing his inspirational images and Irish blessings on his popular Facebook and Instagram pages.

Keep up with his adventures through his newsletter here.
