Description

Robert O'Brien loves cars. Growing up in Dublin, they provided a welcome refuge from the human interaction he found so difficult. His father's M3 became his alter—ego?powerful, admired, confident - and Robert began a quest to become a worthy owner. He completed a university degree, took courses to conquer his stammer and tried to come to terms with his sexuality. But still he remained more comfortable in the fantasy worlds of video games, television and the closet. Inspired to pursue an acting career, he moved from Ireland to Vancouver insearch of sci—fi stardom, liberation and himself. After years of struggle and therapy, he is now proud of the man he is and no longer believes he needs to be fixed.


Author Bio

Robert James O'Brien grew up in Ireland as a closeted homosexual with a stutter. Looking to reinvent himself, he moved to Canada in 2010 and is now based in Vancouver, BC. A teacher and an actor, he is a geek who loves Stargates and every box Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo put on the shelves. Robert's first book, The Mini: A strategic relaunch of a dormant brand, was published in 2016 by Lambert Academic Publishing.
