I'm originally a TV producer but started producing festivals. I produced a film festival and a music festival in Turkey in 2011 and 2013. Recently I organised a concert of Irish music in Babylon for St. Patrick's day.
I love to travel and I first came to Istanbul in 1998 because I was interested in the East and to discover Byzantium. I travelled to a lot of places in Turkey including the Kackars, which I love. I live in Kas now for the last year and a half with my daughter Anu. I love it here because I love living in nature.. I do massage, reiki and reflexology for a living here and really enjoy it.
I come to Istanbul now and again to do massage so that's why I am looking for a place to stay in Istanbul....
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love to travel and receive travellers in my home. I live in Turkey now a few years and sometimes need to go to Istanbul to do work and I can't keep spending the amount of money I do and come back with nothing! So I am now looking to have an adventure, meet new people, plus save on accomodation costs and at least try to earn more than my arifare while I am there. I oragnise Irish cultural events in Istanbul from time to time and, my second vocation, give treatments in massage, reiki and reflexology.
