About Me


I am a happy go lucky person, who loves the outdoors. I run different community based projects in my hometown to promote the benefits of people coming together and connecting with nature such as a non profit vegan night, full moon gathering and building of a clay oven in the forest. I want to share and connect with others in a positive way.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It fits in completely with my ethos in life, to share and connect with others. Such a beautiful way of travel.


I love travelling and making new friends around the world. I am really interested in learning about different cultures and cuisines, especially vegan recipes. I am not a strict vegan but I do try my best and run a vegan night as a way of inspiring others (and myself) to make vegan options.
I like sports such as surfing, snowboarding and mountain biking, though I haven't been doing as much sports like this as I broke my back snowboarding. Heading back to the snow for the first time since my accident.
I am up for the party and also up for chill time too.
Right now I live back in my hometown after 5 years travelling. I am learning lots of complimentary therapies and the connection between a healthy mind, body and soul.
I do lots of projects in the forest, to bring people together in a healing environment. This is really important to me and I get a lot from being out in nature. The stereotypical tree hugger, at your service! lol

Music, Movies, and Books

this changes with me, but right now my buzz is off blues and Irish music. plus I am loving fire gathering jamming sessions. Not that i am particularly musically talented, but I can get carried away beating a drum :)

Not watched a movie in ages!! Don't have a tv but mostly I enjoy a good series. The last one I watched was Westworld, which was awesome. I love Game of Thrones (no Northern Irish person doesn't, seeing as it is filmed here) and Vikings.

Currently reading The Testament of Gideon Mack
