About Me


Hi! I'm a traveller so more likely turning up in your doorstep than hosting...
Currently studying for a BA in Fashion Design / Fine Art / Visual Culture in Dublin and in the meanwhile working with food, creative projects concerning sustainability, coastal resources, seaweed... particularly excited by fair trade / sustainable / women's developement fashion at the moment...

Generally relaxed, happy, excited about life and good for a chat or an existential debate... always delighted to be on the road exploring a new place! I love spontaneous adventures so will tag along on whatever you're doing or find a nice cafe to draw in / field to dance in. Dinner parties, cafes, music nights... avoid all tourist attractions...

Previously couch-surfing with my fantastic travel-buddy Grainne O'Carroll ( ) so most of my references are there!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've couchsurfed in Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Florence and Rome, to be continued...

Sleeping on a local's sofa is a million times better than a strange hostel where your only engagement with a local is to hand over money. Beat the impersonal capitalist system! I have met such incredibly fun, energised, exciting people couch-surfing...those who are happy in life and open to making a friend or being spontaneous. Also much more likely to see what a place is really like and save your money for food / activities.

As well as couchsurfing I've worked on organic farms in Nepal through wwoofing (amazing network and the way we should all travel, I would recommend to anyone unless you absolutely hate the outdoors!)


Fine art, design (Fair Trade / sustainable / organic), culture (sociology and visual culture particularly exciting), travelling, cooking international and healthy food, hiking, sailing the Irish and English coast, swimming in the open sea, dancing (any location)
