About Me


To play and share music around the world.


I'm generally an easy going person. I love learning about new cultures and going to non touristy places in different countries. I have a strong passion for music especially jazz but I also like electronic music, classical, south indian classical etc. I like to discuss everything from philosophy and politics to food and movies!


Take any opportunity that comes to you, even if it scares you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I can't host but I am definitely up for showing people around either the city or the area where I live which is south of the city. I can show you cool shops, restaurants, cafes and nightclubs in Dublin city. In Dun Laoghaire, where I live, there are some really nice walks along the seafront and some cool spots to eat and drink that I can show you too!


I have just come back from 2 months traveling along the west coast of America and couch surfed the whole time. It was an incredible experience and exactly what I was looking for out of this trip. Like I said, I can't host right now but I would like to give back to the community in whatever way I can. Once I have a place where I can host, I will also do that!
