Area: MenorcaMy educational training and professional experience is in Interior Design. I have a degree in Interior Design from the School Elisava of Barcelona (Spain), and have for many years maintained my own consulting service in Menorca, Spain, that focuses on sustainability, energy efficiency and bioclimatic building. I have also helped organize and participated in numerous national seminars and projects such as Startup Weekend, Caeb, Joves Empresaris, and other nonprofit organizations. I have been the president of Menorca AAVIB for two years. I am also actively involved with the Arts Association of Menorca, which spearheads the dissemination of art and local artists, building links between people of different cultures, nationalities and languages. I would love to meet open people, that want to share an experience, in a wonderful island. The house is very well located, you can go biking everywhere, or have the bus stop very close.

Winter jobs – pruning vineyard and plums, fertilising, replacing posts & wires, cleaning irrigation ditches and weeding Spring jobs – attaching vines, plant new vineyard, and vegetable garden, training new growth, lowering netting and weeding. Summer jobs - harvesting plums and vegetables, removing shoots, topping vineyard, processing harvest and weeding. Autumn jobs – harvesting all crops and weeding.
