About Me


Transform myself from an Irish man who spends a lot of time propped up against bars to a Samba dancing maverick!


Hi! I'm a very laid back Irish lad. I'm very healthy and active but I do enjoy a good 24 hour boozing session. I'm living in Rio for 6 months and am going to try and master the language and maybe learn to Samba and get a job (maybe!!). I've spend 8 years in college. 4 doing geography and sociology, 2 doing sound engineering and music technology (I like trying to make dance music, I'm quite bad at it though!) and 2 more doing Outdoor adventure management. It took me a long time to find my niche but I love working in the outdoors. I used to do powertboat tours around dublin bay which was incredible fun, now I'm a freelance high ropes instructor. I love working in an area that people get great excitement and enjoyment from. Lots of smiles (and the odd tear from fear)!!!!


Big fan of experiential learning. Keep doing things!! Not that deep I know!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm new to rio so just want to meet people!




Music (particularly dance) but I have a broad taste as my father has around 3000 record in our house! Whiskey (I do enjoy the odd bottle). Adventure Sports. Powerboat driving at night around Dublin bay with no lights and big waves. And I have a soft spot for girls!
