About Me

The most important things in life are
1. LEARNING and
2. ROCK N ROLL.

CURRENT MISSION
I'd like to see more of Ireland this summer and I'm planning my next trip to Canada and Seattle.

ABOUT ME

I love most people and most places, there's something good in everything. I am happiest when there's live music and/or the sea and sky, or if there's a dog. Anywhere there's a dog.

PHILOSOPHY

'First say to yourself what you would be, then do what you have to do'. -Epictetus

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I haven't been on here in a while but I've met a couple of people from it before in Ireland and Spain. I'd like to meet more people now , especially Spanish speakers but anyone would be cool. Or if you're from Canada, they just seem nice?

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Went to the Rory Gallagher festival with Ben and his brother and sister, met up with Naree in Granada, lovely way to meet interesting and open people.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Nearly got sucked through a wormhole into another dimension by the raving and shimmering Aurora Borealis! In Northern Iceland.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can show you round Dublin if I'm at home. I love my city and if you're into literature and can show you all the spots associated with great Irish writers and bring you to see some new great Irish writers if there are any events on while you're here. I play a bit of guitar and sing so maybe we could play some music. And I can teach you some Irish if you're up to the challenge.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I don't have a bed or couch to offer right now but I can show you around and take you out with my friends if we're doing anything.
