About Me


I'm a filmmaker who works in political communications by day. I use my interest in filmmaking to connect with people all over the world, whether that be at creative events, digital nomad gatherings, or other types of activities.

Rest assured, I have other interests outside of filmmaking. I am eager to explore local cultures and assist people in any way I can.

I have learnt there are some benefits to staying in one place for too long so if you want advice about stuff to do in Dublin send me a message.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet interesting people who I can share new experiences. But also to meet people who share my interests and might want to collaborate on new projects.

I am also willing to answer any questions you may have about Dublin. Don't hesitate to reach out.
