I'm from Shannon, Co. Clare, the youngest of five. I studied in NUIG, Galway, and am currently working in Limerick as a biotech specialist. I’m just back from New York where I was working for the last month. Earlier this year I went to New Zealand, where I kayaked, hiked, and bungeed my way around the place. Last year I tried snowboarding in the alps, but can safely say I'm not built for the snow, I think I’ll stick to surfing in Lahinch. I'm also a qualified lifeguard and try to get out swimming/surfing when the Irish weather permits.
