Simply the best teacher I'll ever have. He's an extremely nice guy and a great teacher. He really enjoys his job. Portmarnock will never be the same without him 10 years from now.

Sound man when he likes you, although is quite slow to work and doesnt meet deadlines. Never finishes his sentences, its hard to understand what he is asking of you most of the time. Is good at what he does
