About Me


I'd like to know where the changing rooms are.


I was born in Dublin.
I play music and surf occasionally.
When I was a kid, my friend convinced me that we were both ewoks. I thought that was kind of cool. Months later he told me he was a vampire and couldn't go in the sun. We stopped hanging round a little bit after that.
Someone once proposed to me because they wanted their children to have my teeth.
I used to have a beard.


I'll believe in anything, if you believe in anything.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well, so far I've not done very much. But I've found i'm surprisingly proud of Dublin and I quite enjoy showing people around it.


I like music quite a bit and have played in bands since I was a young one. I like surfing, running, swimming, cycling and playing football. Oddly though I'm not particularly good at watching football. Or playing it really either, but I still enjoy it. I'm not so keen on brushing my teeth and do it out of necessity rather than for pleasure. But I do it well.
