About Me

Irishman that came to USA same year as The Beatles
I'm a workaholic and enjoy what I do.
It's my plan to retire in the coming twelve months and move home to the place where I was born.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To help others especially students to find seasonable accommodation but I ask that you place your request at least two weeks before your arrival and that you meet my standards.
But I'm not going to host anyone who's Name, & Address, Donation and phone number has NOT been verified.
Get verified!
and prefer someone that will be visiting Chicago for the first time.
Ask that all of you have at least six photographs in your profile

If there's more than one person in the group I need to see both photograph's otherwise PLEASE Don't ask!
Need you to have at least six photographs of yourself in your profile.

Love to show Chicago to first time visitors
