How did you end up being a ‘Doodler’?

I went from studying music to art and onto Graphic Design. After working on odd jobs for a few years after college I did a short course in Web Development that had some work experience attached to it. Once I got in they couldn’t get me out of here.



When you were 5, what did you want to be when grew up?

Hmm, I remember being into spies and private detectives.


What gets you out of bed in the morning?

My cat, ‘Cake’, by sitting on my face.


If Hollywood made a movie about your life. Who would play you?

Colm Meaney


What would people be surprised to learn about you?



What do you have for breakfast?



Your dream holiday. Where? Who with?

I play in a few bands so I think a dream holiday would be playing music while travelling east till I go all the way round and get home again. Also I’d like to see a Tarsier in the wild in Borneo.


Unveil an obsession you have?

Music I haven’t heard before.


Favourite project that you have worked on and why?

The new Shine Social skill app was exiting to work on because it brought together a lot of different skills I had that I didn’t expect to be using here at Doodle. Also the fact that it has a real world impact that I can get behind makes the work much enjoyable.


What superhero would you be and why?

I am too much of a nerd to answer that. Baby-Man is character I was thinking got making a comic book of. His super power is acting like a baby when the going gets tough.
