Howdy! I’m Paddy O’Connell.

But most people call me PaddyO. If we haven’t met, let’s solve that. Welcome to my site and my work.

Whether you found me in your favorite outdoor mag, on a dot com, on Instagram, listening to a podcast, watching a video, at an event, on the slopes, or at your local donut or corndog stand (or some magical corndog-donut stand combination): THANK YOU! I’ve been captivated by stories and storytelling since I was a wee un-mustached lil baby child. And I am beyond grateful that my love of story and the outdoors make up my every day. It’s truly a dream.

So please, check me out, check out my work, and drop me a line. I’d love to hear from you.

Oh, and if you’re into my work, my thoughts, and the PaddyO lifestyle, why don’t ya pick up a hat or a mug or a mask or twelve?

Keep it weird, pals!
