Mick Ó Seasnáin has continually attempted to farm his quarter acre lot in the small town of Wooster, Ohio while catering to the diverse and often unanticipated needs of his students and his three rowdy children. His wife tolerates his creative habits and occasionally enables his binges of writing and photography.
Art and words - that’s the short of it. Ó Seasnáin has always enjoyed capturing beautiful moments with art and words. Ó Seasnáin graduated from St. Edward High School (Lakewood, Ohio) and then completed a B.A. in English from Baldwin Wallace University followed by an M.A.T. in English from Miami University. He works with The National Writing Project through Kent State University, and he teaches English language arts for Edgewood Middle School in Wooster, Ohio. By trade, Ó Seasnáin is a teacher and writing coach who dabbles in other artistic expressions.
