Rory O’Brien Bio
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?
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.
