About Me




I just moved from Dublin to London, would be great to meet some people here.

I'm sorta socially anxious but if your lovely, I WILL warm to you, if your not, we're both screwed.

I live a successfull acheivement filled life
for instance I have cloned a cow....
photocopying is essentially the same as cloning....
but the cow was real.....
Just made of cardboard....

I love Art and I'm loving spoken word and performance/slam poetry at the minute!

My grandmother used to pray for me when I would bake a cake in the middle of the night, maybe that gives you an idea of my personality.....

Also I've been told I balance on the line between fun and stupid (at the time I was climbing into a public fountain...) - I took it as a compliment, it is a compliment right?

My rambling and writing or rambly writing;
My art project -


..... yet to be discovered...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Photocopied a cow, sky dived, found bullets from WW1 in a trench in Austria, Slept in trainstations, followed strangers home once for food- i won! Rescued a SEAL from the Navy, got a donkey drunk once,was inside a truckers cabin on a boat, climbed a crane, walked and cycled from London to Berlin, taught slum women English in Delhi, trekked a 100km without sleep and started my own magazine.

Ugh - it sounds like boasting.
