Hey I’m Harry
I like to learn – and to share what I’ve learnt and how I did it with other people. I’m from Ireland but you won’t necessarily find me there. My aim in life is to travel the world and learn from the amazing people I encounter.
For too many people life is a linear path to be followed. They tick of milestones because they are supposed to, not because they want to. They confuse “learning” and “education” and think that once they’re done with school and college, they’re done.
That isn’t the life I lead. I love to learn, play and explore the world around me. This site is my invitation to you to join me in doing this. Say “No!” to the typical choices and live your own way.
On this site I’ll show you what I’ve learnt, how I learnt it and how to learn in general. To be a good learner, you need to be productive so I also share some of my best advice on that.
To finance my adventures I write and design websites. I write a lot for the Tuts+ network – mainly on using computers and taking photographs. You can see some of my most recent tutorials below.
