About Me

Like meeting new people, having interesting conversations, taking it as it goes. The usual, really.


I love travelling - I want to spend as much of my life as possible doing it and experiencing different cultures. I love music - all kinds really, especially jazz (I play the trumpet and piano [kind of]). I also enjoy a good book, film, or nature documentary. Big into rugby too. Things rarely fail to interest me.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like Acoustic Ladyland, Erik Truffaz, Neutral Milk Hotel... I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to films, and Italo Calvino and Flann O'Brien are probably my favourite authors at the moment.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being constantly amazed at my incredible luck with the people I meet and the places I see.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm trying to learn Swedish at the moment since I'll be spending some time in Stockholm, so any help with that would be much appreciated! As for what I can offer... well I do neuroscience research so can talk a bit about how our brain works. I enjoy a good discussion about anything really.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can teach some Gaelic (Irish), French or English, and cook up a reasonably nice meal. I'm pretty good with computers. Happy to help in whatever way I can!

Countries I’ve Visited

Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Croatia, France, Greece, Iceland, India, Italy, Montenegro, Morocco, Nepal, Sri Lanka, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

Ireland, Switzerland, United Kingdom
