  • Descripción


    Old hippie wannabe whose spirit is in his 30s but whose body is in its 70s. My idealism has been worn down, but there is still hope for a better world.

    My "project" will be to recover from 6-7 weeks of radiation treatment for throat cancer. The condition is fully recoverable, but expected to deplete my energy and enthusiasm. I may not need help at all, but having a Workaway person offers confidence that, if I do need help, help is available.

    Over the past year I have hosted about 100 guests through couchsurfing and from there have a few colorful stories and some colorful friends. I have references on my Couchsurfing account.

    Since this is my first time out with Workaway, I'll offer a couple of references who have stayed with me in Couchsurfing. Ask for the link.

    I'm a US expat living in Ireland and fascinated with cultural differences, and a proponent of quality of life. Practical philosophy, if such exists, and psychology are among my interests. My work history ranges from breaking rocks to operating and maintaining a nuclear power plant on submarines, energy management, systems engineering, sailing wooden ships, operations research and management, massage therapy, live radio broadcasting, wild animal rescue/rehab, and most recently I'm working at playwriting. And I volunteer like crazy. Galway International Arts Festival will be happening during your stay, so there will be lots of opportunity for enrichment there.

    If you have interest in juggling, I'm a pretty good teacher and would love to have a juggling partner for passing routines.

    Seeing how others approach and solve problems has benefited me, and cultural exchange has supercharged that. My nature is to question status quo and when appropriate to defy the business-as-usual approach to life. Maybe my guests can take something that benefits them from my stories.

    Expecting about eight weeks of being depleted from medical treatment, radiation and chemo. The work that may be needed is cooking, household chores, and shopping, mainly for groceries or pharmaceuticals.

    I am energized by stories and thought provoking conversations. If you can make me think and reconsider thoughts I have accumulated through the years, you will contribute to my healing.
