About Me

I'm a 32-year-old currently calling Dublin home. An easy-going and versatile individual, I'm fueled by a passion for travel and meeting new people. Sharing my experiences, along with good food and drinks, is where I find joy. My friends often describe me as friendly, adaptable, and energetic. I thrive on learning new things and embracing the diversity of our world.

Let's connect, share stories, and create memorable experiences together!


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe that travel is not just about exploring new places but also about connecting with people from different backgrounds and cultures. Couchsurfing embodies this belief, and that's why I'm here.

Cultural Exchange: I'm passionate about cultural exchange. Staying with locals or hosting travelers allows me to gain a deeper understanding of the places I visit. It's an opportunity to learn about traditions, taste authentic cuisine, and experience daily life from a local perspective.

Friendships and Connections: Some of my most cherished travel memories involve the friends I've made. It's incredible how sharing a meal, a conversation, or a home for a few days can lead to lifelong friendships and connections around the world.

Sharing Experiences: As a seasoned traveler with experiences in over 25 countries, I want to pay it forward by providing a comfortable and welcoming space for fellow adventurers. I love sharing my city's hidden gems, local tips, and stories from my journeys.

Traveling around a city is fun if you do it with a little help from a local: I truly believe that exploring a city is an enriching experience when guided by a local. From the best street food stalls to the hidden cultural gems, a local perspective adds a layer of authenticity to every adventure.

Meeting People from Different Parts of the World: There's something magical about meeting people from different corners of the globe and understanding their traditions and cultures. It's like embarking on a mini-world tour without leaving home. Every new connection broadens my horizons and deepens my appreciation for our diverse planet.

I look forward to meeting fellow travelers and being a part of the Couchsurfing family, where the world becomes a smaller and friendlier place through shared experiences and genuine connections.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: I have a deep appreciation for the rich and diverse musical traditions of India. The melodies of classical Indian ragas, the rhythms of Bollywood hits, and the fusion sounds of artists like A.R. Rahman resonate with me. I'm always eager to explore new dimensions of Indian music, so if you're a fellow enthusiast, let's talk about our favorite tunes and maybe even enjoy a live performance if the opportunity arises.

Movies: I have a particular fondness for war epics, historical dramas, and mythological tales on the silver screen. Movies like "Lagaan," "Rang De Basanti," and "Padmaavat" hold a special place in my heart. I'm also a fan of thought-provoking war films like "Saving Private Ryan" and "Apocalypse Now." Let's discuss our favorite cinematic masterpieces, and who knows, we might organize a movie night during your stay.

Books: "Rich Dad Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki is a book that has had a profound impact on my perspective about wealth and financial intelligence. It's a valuable read that I often recommend to friends and fellow travelers. If you're interested in discussing financial literacy and personal finance, I'd be delighted to share insights and learn from your experiences as well.

I'm passionate about these interests and always excited to connect with like-minded people who share a love for global culture, cinema, and personal development. Feel free to strike up a conversation about any of these topics, and let's explore our common interests during your visit!
