About Me




Hi Folks, I'm from a small fishing village in Ireland. I'm a musician and sound recordist.
I love the outdoors, surfing, photography, reading.
I'm easy going and love meeting new people.
I'm looking for some big change and adventure in my life


Bootlace theory. We're all just the same stuff running on the same program, experiencing life as individuals... I'm not an atheist, spiritualist or pantheist. I don't know what I Is :)
I want to surround myself with interesting, positive, creative people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Still new to this, but I had my first surfer a couple of weeks back. Really enjoyed the experience and I hope to make CSing a much bigger part of my life in the future. It really is a great way to expand yourself and your horizons, I know I'll meet many interesting people through this over the coming years.


Only positive, I'm very impressed with the actually tangible community spirit in CSing. Its not just something you hear about online but actually experience in your own home. Its the best thing I've signed up to ever!!


Acting the Maggot, Holographic theory, quantum physics, philosophy, anything involving salty water cus its in my blood, Being a Good Person, mindfulness, being surprised, making people laugh, taking pictures, writing music, listening to music that expresses who i am better than i ever could.

Music, Movies, and Books

I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off
I wish I was a sacrifice but somehow still lived on
I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
The Christmas tree, I wish I was the star that went on top
I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds
For 50 million hands upraised and open toward the sky

I wish I was a sailor with someone who waited for me
I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me
I wish I was a messenger and all the news was good
I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro's hood

I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun
I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on
I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on
I wish I was the verb 'to trust' and never let you down

I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up
I wish...
I wish... Ryan Adams, Pearl Jam..... and sooooooooo many more

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been involved in several album recordings... one of which knocked Madonna off the top of the album charts in Ireland. Woohoo.
I've travelled a bit, but not as much as I'd like. So I'm looking forward to exploring BC quite a bit over the next couple of years.
I really have a hankering to take up the following hobbies... hang-gliding, rock climbing, hiking in wolf infested hills, kayaking with disgruntled Orcas.

Teach, Learn, Share


"If you wanted to leave me and roam when you got back I'd just say welcome home.".... the most beautiful sentiment I ever felt, Sing it Sam.

The more you can let go of physically and meta-physically, the less you need to be a fuller person. I think theres something of an "off-gridder" in me.... into the wild with me someday.

What I Can Share with Hosts

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne’er express, yet cannot all conceal.
