About Me


To travel meet new people! have fun! live life to its fullest, and bring others along with me.


Those who worry in life will die and those that do not worry in life will also die so why should you ever worry? I like meeting new people thats why I also do it for a living! learning about different cultures and languages is always good and to just broaden the mind also!

I love my home city! and my country but still like the idea of getting away and traveling too. I Worked in the Charity sector in Dublin, I have also been a windsurfing instructor in the west coast of Ireland most of the summer, where I teach kids how to windsurf using only the Irish Language. I also like to Sail, and Play Ultimate Frisbee. I graduated 2011 from UCC, in the south of Ireland. I come from a large Irish family with 4 brothers and a sister(I am the youngest)


Play it by ear. Deal with what comes your way, act upon what happens. enjoy life from all angles mostly the little things in life should be enjoyed to their fullest!laugh when you can... and sometimes when you shouldn't meet knew people.... life isn't about what you know its about who you know and what you have done.

Those who worry in life will die, those that do not worry will die, so why should you ever worry.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In 2011-2012 I hosted people in Dublin while I had a place, I keep an eye out on the events and use the messege board while traveling to link up with other surfers to have a fun time! many nights out, I enjoy showing people around my home town and telling them as much of what i know about its history.


Just back from California where I couch surfed a bit in San Francisco
