Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Want to meet and experience the real people and places of the countries I go! Also hope to host couchsurfers in the quiet town of Warrenpoint
I'm a film maker and have made a few short films. My first short film "The Pigman" even managed to pick up the Best Short award and a few other awards at festivals throughout Europe. I then made a short horror film called The Wake, which premiered in a drive-in theatre in the US and was selected for Comic-Con 2019.
If you would like to watch my short film "The Pigman" here is the link https://youtu.be/39MWc9eGJLo
It was shot in my home village in Ireland, so gives you an idea of where I come from... the people are nicer in real-life though!
Apart from film, I played rugby for 15+ years, but now just like to spectate. Like to play the odd game of golf, go for a run and swim.
