About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Some say you cannot see the whole world in one life. I say you might as well die trying.

ABOUT ME

I have spent my time studying political science and international relations but my real passion is traveling the world and meeting new people. I am a huge fan of music and look to it as a soundtrack for my life. My music tastes range from Miles Davis to Neil Young to My Morning Jacket. I am currently hooked on Motown and soul music, this music has defined my life for the last year or so. With this being said please follow the link below and let the music speak for me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am currently studying at the University College Cork and would love to meet people coming in and out of my little city. There might not be much to do here but that should not deter you from coming to see our beautiful cathedrals, pubs and side streets.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I am new the CS community but as a college student I have had some excellent 'unofficial' couch surfing experiences. These would include driving from Burlington Vermont to Montreal Canada only to be turned around at the door of a hostel, with no other place to go my friend and I proceeded to live in the moment and drive all the way to Delaware, call a friend approximately 23 times and at 7 AM after 678 miles and 11 hours plus driving finally finding a couch in his basement.

Interests

I am highly interested in learning from others and that is one of my favorite reasons to travel. There are so many beautiful places to see and so many stories to be told.

Music, Movies, and Books

Anything by Quintin Terrentino or Wes Anderson. Anything with Samuel L. Jackson or Daniel Day Lewis in it. I enjoy laughing so I prefer comedies such as Grandma's Boy, Old School or Wedding Crashers.
