S3E5: Niall O'Leary–A Life By, And Of, Design.

S3E5: Niall O'Leary–A Life By, And Of, Design.

Niall O'Leary is best known as a performer of Irish dance in the New York area, and further afield.  A lesser known fact about Niall is that he also has his own Manhattan-based architecture practice.

The amazing thing about Niall is how he has managed to satisfy his innate need to create and design in these two very disparate disciplines.  To him there is barely a difference between them. Maybe every young person should be trained to think like Niall, so when they are asked what they want to be when they grow up, they'll transcend the usual labels and actually be able to distill what it is will actually make them happy!  Wouldn't that make for an interesting world?   And, case in point, Niall himself is a happy fellow, as anyone who knows him will attest.  He's also a gifted musician.

Niall's alma mater: University College Dublin.
