m i c h a e l w r i t e s :
I was born in London, and raised in Greece and Amerika. I lived and worked in Athens, Greece
for 15 years and am now returned to Dublin. I'm mostly a designer and musician, I also DJ at
clubs and parties - see here.
I spent many years in advertising and magazines as an art director, helping to sell mostly
useless overpriced objects, instilling them with emotion and style, so unsuspecting people
could feel the void of existence filled for an hour or two, maybe a day, animating that which
is inherently inanimate...
I write when I have to, when my Irish DNA calls forth to fill the void
or I've had too much raki. Some books that got me started were William Blake's "The
Marriage of Heaven and Hell", Kahlil Gibran's "Spiritus Rebellious" and
the Sufi masters like Rumi, Al Ghazali and Saa'di. All of whom need no introductions like
"I used to want buyers for my words.
Now I wish someone would buy me away from words..." - Rumi
