Being from Belfast, it’s hard to not grow up surrounded by the legend of Titanic and Harland & Wolff. Born in 1994, I grew up in a world that would be Titanic-mad following the release of the 1997 film. So I took an intimate and deep interest in this beautiful ship that was built just down the road from me. This fascination only grew with the release of the Leo Marriott book titled ‘Titanic’ (1997) that also featured the beautiful art of Simon Fisher, on top of ‘Titanic: Answers from the Abyss’ documentary from 1999.
My passion for Titanic began on my 6th birthday back in 1997 when I saw a picture of the rising stern in a book my Grandma gave to me. I was immediatly captivated by this image and I will never forget how I could not stop staring at it. Over the years, the love for this ship and the curiosity for its unique story grew. I started getting more and more involved with the Titanic and wanted to delve into every corner of the story to grasp what the Titanic and her story really meant. The uniqueness and tragedy of Titanic’s history touches me every time and will never let me go.
My passion for Titanic began when I saw the movie ‘Titanic’ by James Cameron in 1997 at the age of 9. The film had a profound impact on me, as I was already fascinated by tales of pirates and sunken treasure. The subsequent years I spent researching Titanic fueled my passion for history and eventually led me to create my own group to search for and explore sunken ships. A bit of a history nerd, I often find myself editing videos of the wreck into educational videos. My pet project, ‘Wreck Thursday’ involved the dissecting of internal Titanic wreck footage and breakting down what we are seeing for other enthusiasts to better understand and enjoy.
