Expat life

Living In A Foreign Country

In 2016, I packed a suitcase, my guitar and my adventurous spirit and moved half way across the world from Ireland to The UAE – Dubai specifically.

While it was the scariest thing I’ve ever done, I was also excited for the new opportunities and experiences that awaited me in this vibrant, multicultural city.

Since moving, I’ve had so many opportunities to travel, met and worked with the most incredible people from all over the world, and come out of my introverted shell in ways I never thought possible. It’s amazing how a change of scenery can open up new experiences and perspectives!
