À propos de moi


To teach and sing and play my way across the Planet


I'm a newly qualified primary teacher working in Dublin and will hopefully moving back to my home town Dundalk after the summer. I spend every spare second i have playing, practicing, recording or listening to music. I play in 4 bands; A Rage Against the Machine Tribute (bulls on parade), A Johnny Cash tribute band, a Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute (Red Hot Cherry Poppers) and an original band called Painting by Numbers. In the bands i play bass but i also play guitar and sing. Im busy every weekend practising or gigging and live for both.
I'm a big sports fan too particularly playing and watching soccer and Gaelic games and i'm a Man Utd fanatic!
My aim, having finished my studies just this year, is to play music and travel as much as I possibly can before i settle into a permanent teaching position.
I did some volunteer teaching work in Nairobi Kenya last summer and would be extremely keen to continue working as a volunteer in the future and plan to return to Kenya as soon as possible.

'It's better to regret something you did, than something you didn't do' - Flea
Other than these words i'm not sure i've figured out what i'm all about yet, still plenty of time though i hope!

Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing


I only found out about this project at the weekend when sleeping on a mates couch after a gig. He told me about how he couch-surfed across canada and the US. I thought it was the best idea ever and with a trip from New York to LA planned in July i thought id check it out! I'll have to see how i can participate a little more but i guess i can start by offering my couch in Dublin city centre up to anyone whos interested!


None yet!Well not officially anyway, have slept on lots of couches though.

Une aventure extraordinaire que j'ai vécue

Its not that amazing because lots of people do this sort of thing but it felt amazing when i was there; i taught in a slum in Nairobi, Kenya last summer and it really changed my outlook on life in a huge way.
