Irish Murph

Born in Dublin Ireland and living in the U.S. since the early 80's, I used to call NYC home until early 2000. A move to Florida and a rags to riches story of "Irishman becomes a millionaire" lasted until I discovered, the hard way, that I'm an alcoholic, so it didn't end well. I lost everything and ended up in hospital and re-hab having been a day or two away from death.
Rather than get back on the hamster wheel of life, I just said fuck it, packed up my cameras on the bike and left Florida (which I never liked anyway) to search for a better place to lay my hat. Nearly 4 years later I'm still on the road and still looking.
A full-time motorcycle photojournalist, I now live and travel on a 2004 R1150GS Adventure 2 Wheel Drive Sidecar outfit, and publish a twice monthly photographic article on my blog:

My "3 Wheels, 7 Continents, 7 Years" the Expedition, is currently in Finland as of October 2013 after riding to Nordkapp to be the first motorcycle sidecar of 2013 to reach that northernmost point on New years Day 2013.

All of the photos you see here on my 500px page are all taken as I travel, an ongoing travelogue as it were.
