Sean Murphy
Artist | Professional | Photography
United States

Hi, I'm cypher-neo! I am a normal person with opinions and feelings, just like everyone else. I do my best to smile at all times, and I have an infectious laugh. I am addicted to coffee and hot chocolate. I hate weak coffee.

I'm a professional photographer. I shoot engagements, weddings, nature, fashion, models... I am accepting photography commissions. If you would like to retain me, please send me an email at

I am a computer nerd extraordinaire - I give wannabe nerds an inferiority complex. I enjoy programming, and I am an expert in shell programming. If you need any help with Linux programming, setting up a Linux desktop, or just have Linux questions, please ask me and I'll try my best to answer them.

I write articles (generally about computing and other nerd-interests) and have webcasts on my blog Proxy Glider.

I feel I'm better at writing stories than poetry, but sometimes I can't think of the words to say to write longer, so then I write verses. I like vividness of subject in both pictures and literature.

I'm very eclectic in television and movies. I like Japanese anime/cartoons and just about any science fiction television series out there.

I was a MN@ for about a year and a half and I enjoyed every minute of it! Volunteering for deviantART is a wonderful experience and I encourage everyone to try it.

I only take critiques well when it's coming from someone who wants to help me improve. I don't respect criticism from people who give decide that an art critique can also include comments about my parenting, or other similar incendiary subjects. I don't mind getting a negative critique; but when you critique me please do it to help me improve. Don't just bash me...

I am fiercely loyal to all of my friends, and I always stand up for my friends and what I believe in. If someone does or says something that I feel is wrong, I'll respond and, remembering my debate statistics above, I can be a fierce fighter when I'm needed to be.

I love helping people unreservedly. If you ever need any help, just send me a note and I'll be glad to assist you as far as possible. I'm a SuperdAmn Ambassador.

I figure I'll never be remembered for doing anything impressively special in life, but I hope to be remembered for all the small things I've helped in.
