About Me


the mission after the last mission


After living in Dublin and NYC for the last few years I've moved to London almost four years ago to go to University. I recently finished my Degree and am now taking on the next challenge with moving to Leeds.
I like to keep up with current affairs and I'm obsessed with anything digital and coding but I also really enjoy music, especially in the form of vinyls, film and literature.
What else? I Like yellow/orange colored fruits more than red/ blue ones,every single time I cook pasta, the water boils over and I hold my thumbs when I sleep.

life it too short to not make stupid, inappropriate jokes!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I started surfing when I came to the states and I just love it. I hope I'll be able to host people, once I get my own place.


I love to travel, to experience the world and it's people. I can sit for hours in Starbucks and just watch people ( and eat cookies). I love literature,poetry,film, music,photography, nature and the sea.
I pretty much like anything connected to water like swimming or kayaking. Really want to try kite surfing at some point!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I once ended up on a military training ground with my bycicle, after being chased by some kind of apple farmer, before finding myself almost on a motorway in northern italy!
I managed to get sent off from the white house by a cop, yes I am proud of that!
