Education

My journey began with a degree in Graphic Design, where I learned about visual communication and digital tools. I started as a UI/UX designer for a casino site in Africa. Wanting to know more about online gambling, I went from Nairobi to Ireland to study Web Development and Digital Marketing. My move into the gambling world was boosted by a special course in Gambling and Gaming Studies. Learning from design to gambling details helped me grow professionally and become an expert in the world of online casinos in Ireland.

Experience in Gambling

I understand how online casinos work, beyond just the technical side. Mixing my skills in design, development, marketing, and gambling has been key to my growth. You see, it’s crucial to keep building a variety of skills and continue learning, especially in the fast-paced world of online gambling. However, theoretical knowledge alone is not enough.

Understanding online casinos also means playing in them. Over a decade, I’ve experienced wins and losses and have even run into scams. However, all this is valuable learning, helping me distinguish between good and bad casinos. Now, I share what I’ve learned to help others enjoy online gambling responsibly.

Why I Decided to Blog About Gambling in Ireland

I decided to blog about gambling in Ireland due to my extensive experience and deep knowledge gained from playing various casino games at numerous online casinos and working in this industry. Over the years, I’ve experienced the thrill of wins and the lessons from losses. This journey has not only enriched my understanding of the gambling world but also ignited a passion to share my insights with others.

Ireland’s unique gambling scene, with its vibrant culture and specific regulatory landscape, presents a fascinating backdrop for a blog. I aim to demystify the online gambling world for Irish players and offer them valuable information that can enhance their gaming experience. From reviewing casinos and games to providing tips on responsible gambling, my blog serves as a comprehensive resource for all players in Ireland.

Learn More About Me

Originally from Nairobi, I’ve found a new home in Ireland with my beloved wife, our daughter, and our playful cat. My hobbies have evolved in this beautiful land.

Cooking has always been a passion of mine, and now I experiment with combining Kenyan and Irish cuisines. It’s an adventure that turns the kitchen into a fusion of cultures, with my daughter often joining in. Together, we create dishes that are a celebration of our blended heritage. 

I’ve also developed an interest in Gaelic sports. Attending matches with my family has become a new tradition. This engagement with the community has deepened our sense of belonging in Ireland.
