The Year in Review 2015

2015 was a year of labor and learning. I spent the whole year in NYC and only recently returned to Europe, so it was a tame year.

2015 in review

January – April


I continue living and working in the Big Apple and write 10 thing I love and 10 things I hate about the city. I also share my thoughts on American racism and put forward a controversial article on female skin color and sexual selection.

I release my first short film and it gets me a free trip to Los Angeles for another film project.

The Summer

I get my US visa extended and decide to stay until the end of the year.  I become debt-free and begin to stack cash. I go crazy researching NYC nightlife for my new book, sometimes hitting 10 bars a night.

sailing!I give my thoughts on Washington D.C after a brief visit.

I take my sailing education to the next level and pass a Coastal Cruising course. I get introspective and question sex for sport and flagging.

The blog hits 10 million page views.

The Fall and Winter

I publish my second book Naughty Nomad’s Guide to New York City and even get to meet with the godfather of game himself, Neil Strauss, and we exchange signed copies of our new books.


I say Farewell, New  York, and come home to Ireland for Christmas and have not been sober for the seven days.

I focus on my Arabic language skills and prepare for my upcoming travels.


2016 Preview

I finally get to travel after two years of settled life. I’ve already booked seven flights and hit the road 2nd of January. In the coming weeks I’ll be visiting Barcelona, Andorra, Denmark, Slovakia, and Morocco.

Bring it on!

    Nous sommes tristes. Nous préférons tuer que de vivre. Pourquoi les gens détestent Israël? Pourquoi les gens aiment pas l’Europe? Nous aimons Paris …
