Sean O'Mahoney | ePortfolio

Profile Image

Welcome

Hello World and dwellers of Midgard, as you can see, my name is Sean O'Mahoney, I am 20-years-old and am a passionate Computer Scientist, studying so at Manchester Metropolitan University.

I also have a passion for Graphic/Logo Design and Photography, as you can see on other pages of my site, where I have placed a few pieces of my work. Although in the future (hopefully as part of my third year University project) and maybe as a career, I do want to go into Machine Learning (A.I.) and Natural Language Processing.

This site was made as part of one of my assignments, although I have extended it (spent +5 hours on perfecting the design/layout and even putting it online, which was not needed) and will keep it up to date. I am currently modifying the design (with CSS), which you view the different versions of via clicking the links in the footer (which will change the CSS file it uses, using some Javascript I have written).

More Details (Interests)

If you've clicked into here, then that means you wish to know more about me, well, I am a gamer, I am moving to PC gaming (Steam) although I was mainly gaming on an Xbox 360, where I had/have over 50 games and totalled 19,538G. I have a love for Bethesda Softworks, for Skyrim and Fallout, although their game "Rage" was fun to play. Fun fact, if you were to buy my Steam library today, it would cost you over £4000.

I am also interested in Anime and Japan/Asia in general (Anime Watched List), if you look at my Photography section, you can see a strong presence of Cosplay photography, although I have done it myself in the past. I personally have cosplayed Mephisto Pheles from Blue Exorcist, then in the future, possibly for Manchester MCM, want to cosplay a genderbend Sombra (from the popular video game Overwatch).

Another big interest of mine is music,there isn't a day that goes by where I do not listen to music. I have a dozen headphones, one of my prized ones is an "Audio Technica ATH-M50X", then I also have a vinyl player with over half a dozen vinyls (of Frank Sinatra, Agnes Obel and Babymetal). Here is a Spotify playlist that I have created and add songs I love onto:

Networking Events

Here is an ordered list of Networking Events I have been to, to avoid having to update it as frequent, I will places events I intent to attend, although if I do not attend them, I will remove them (since I would have have been to them).
