About Me


floating the boat


I love onesies! Especially animal onesies... got 19 of them. if the house is freezing, you can borrow a onesie. I am currently in a very active and motivated phase of my hippie life come find out if i am mad or a genius. Polite and kind, wise but daft, colourful and odd. relaxed, inviting, curious, wholehearted, enchanting, up-in-the-sky-down-to-earth guy. love meeting new people and making new friends. a tall Irishman with lots of interesting tales to tell and places to show. And projects to help on. I am taken with the idea of making the world a better place, one smartphone at a time.

Actually this is copy&pasta from my references, so read more there :)

Hospitality does not need Venture Capital; in fact the two themes are anathema to each other
Working together we are stronger

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted a lot; I love surfing. I usually travel with my Assistance Dog. She is a lover not a fighter


Couchsurfing was sold in August 2011 and it isn't getting better since. Every bit of the website worked better before. But it didn't have half as much bling. Maybe one day we'll have bling and functionality :) To be fair, at least it is easier to friend someone now, without being give the third degree. AND they have said that they will add features shortly. BUT they have told volunteers that C$ is no place for them, such a waste of community value.


philanthropy rainbows eclectic confused from metaphysical to cooperative; "making things better by ourselves" writing chatting thinking doing... sometimes very slowly; reading laughing chocolate icecream refined sugar; organic salads of herbs weeds leaves and chinese lanterns; megalithic monuments prechristian Ireland driving on narrow roads dressing up 1984 (look at us all voluntarily growing a Big Brother houseplant in our own wifi hotspots) bright colours wearing a suit once a year reiki Brave New World kila Assistance Dogs

I would love to see a real not-for-profit hostpitality organisation thrive ... only bewelcome.org was my favourite, and trustroots.org has less history holding it back. I be Celtic.Tiger over theres too. Also on helpx, volunteerbase, workaway, etc

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Plankton emitting their own light in the pitch dark... it's called bio-luminescence, and it's amazing when you can see "sparks" of lights on your legs as they come in contact with the plankton, or see you footsteps glowing softly behind you. The light is very soft, so even moonlight hides it, but the plankton come into the local bay every year for a time. One night I even found a mermaid! There is a sad side to this story too but I will save it for later :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to practice the languages I know.

I want to learn about language teaching shortcuts, standup comedy and creative writing. I wanted to write a book or something, but i've got a short attention
And to get to the point more quickly.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I do laughter yoga workouts (laughter therapy http://www.laughteryoga.org/) Get me a group of people and we can do one together!

I am full of stories; i try to take a share in housework without being asked... I like to bring something that we both can enjoy... let me know what you think that might be if it is not obvious from your profile
