The Educated Machine Team


Micheal Reilly

The founder of Educated Machine, Micheal is a developer of all things Web and App related. He’s an enthusiastic historian during the time he’s not at work, which usually leaves him around 7 minutes a week to indulge in some proper study. He ultimately wants Educated Machine to become a space agency. He also really loves competency in fictional characters.

Darragh Canning

A man who wears many hats. Literally. Figuratively speaking he’s a web developer of some reknown. Darragh went it alone for a long time as the man behind web design outfit Spoogle before joining forces with former rivals Educated Machine. Darragh has a fairly ingenious way of making Porridge and according to our resident photographer he also has an exceptional pair of ankles.

Magdalena Przybylowska

Some people love a good sob story. Magda on the other hand feeds on them. You’ve never seen someone be truly happy until you’ve seen our UX designer take in a tale of woe. Much like Raphael of Turtles fame, Magda is the tough one in Educated Machine though she has yet to master any form of armed combat though she can create a mock up of a website better than any anthropomorphic animal.


John Carbery

Friend to all cats. Designer. Probably the only person you’ll ever meet who’ll defend “Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance” as being a good film. John, unlike his namesake Shaft, isn’t a complicated man. His fingers are usually drenched in ink from one illustration project or another and if you’d like to receive a lecture series about why the original Sega Mega Drive controller is an important piece of art, he’s your man.
