I am an Irish man that escaped the rain and cold of the North and decided never to go back! I love the tropics and have lived in Indonesia for 13 years, seven of which have been in Bali. I have been learning kitesurfing, Stand Up Paddling and diving for the last year and starting to love the sun, sand and sea. I run with a fun and bizarre running club called the Hash in the mountains and villages of Bali - which is by far the best way to see the island. I love music, movies and reading and to travel the world - been to many amazing off the beaten track places with my work and hope to continue doing so for as long as I am fit.
I am a conservationist at heart and have worked on many conservation programmes in Europe, Africa and Asia - sadly, no money in that sector, so had to move on and feed the family. I work as a management and fundraising consultant for a range of NGOs, consultancy firms and private companies. My partner and I run two child care facilities in Bali - one in Sanur and the other run Kuta.
I have two amazing kids - Kali and Sid - that stay with me most of the time and we love the Sanur lifestyle. We're a fun Irish family, with a love of good food, good drink and good company. Looking forward to meeting you!
