Who am I?

No one, really. Kind of like you. Which, really, is the beauty of it.  

I'm an American doing graduate work in the Institute for Irish Studies (Why? I have no idea) at the Queen's  University, Belfast.  I'll be finished here in the next couple of months with what is as far as I can tell a completely non-marketable degree, so if you know anyone hiring, I'll be available.  Previous to this little academic venture, I worked as an analyst in the government affairs division of a trade association in Washington, D.C., where I was basically a sort of low-level lobbyist who did a fair amount of legwork for a group of people I really liked and admired.  Still do.  This job involved a significant amount of boating, which continues to amuse me. 

Anyway, enjoy the site, thanks for visiting, and come again. Oh, and feel free to email me at mat404[at]hotmail[dot]com if you feel so compelled.
