  • Description

    I enjoy sharing experiences with people from different places and learning new skills. I have been traveling and living outside of my country for many years. This has taught me many lessons... I consider travel to be as valuable as school. The more you learn how other people live the more understanding you can be when looking at the world.
    Cities are nice and I feel like there is a lot to see but I feel most at home when there are stars overhead and a campfire at my feet.
    I am a social person, i like to go out and meet new people but am also quite happy to curl up with a book for the afternoon.
    Honesty is also something that is very important to me. I am a person that is very open and relies on open communication with the people around me.
    In terms of work ethic, I was taught if you are going to do something....take your time and produce something you are proud of.

    ESPAÑOL:

    Me gusta compartir experiencias con gente de diferentes partes y aprender nuevas habilidades. He estado viajando y trabajando fuera de mi país por muchos años. Estas experiencias me han enseñado muchas cosas que una escuela no ofrece.
    Ciudades son buenas de vez en cuando pero me siento más comoda cuando hay una fogata a mis pies y una noche estallada.
    Creo que soy una persona sociable y me encanta compartir tiempo y historias con gente, pero al mismo tiempo soy feliz buscando un rincon cómodo con mi libro para pasar una tarde.
    Honestidad es súper importante para mí. Soy una persona que necesita comunicación abierta con la gente en mi alrededor.
    En el tema de la ética en mi trabajo mis padres me enseñaron que si vas a hacer algo, tomá tu tiempo y produce algo que te de orgullo.

  • What skills do you have?

    My skills are varied, I work mostly in tourism. I have worked in many hostels/ bed and breakfasts and restaurants. I really enjoy the atmosphere they bring. Gardening, sewing and cooking are some of my favorite things to do in my spare time. Last summer I dug my first garden of my own and found it very rewarding.
    I have also been apart of many building projects and have been told I am a quick study. One of my favorito projects was working at an art maze where we were working with materials like concrete, ceramic tile, metal and styrafom to create various art pieces.
    I am able to sew both by hand and machine. I make the majority of my clothing and sell many of my side projects in small shops and artist co-ops. I have taken on the challenge to only use old clothes to make my creations. It can be challenging but I am a strong believer in up cycling and recycling materials. Some of my best pieces were made from things I found on the ground.
    I have some experience with permaculture techniques from my time in an organic farms in Latin America and am interested in learning more.
    I am always willing to learn new skills!

    ESPAÑOL:

    Mis experiencias son súper variados. La mayoría son en turismo, hostales, bed and breakfasts y restaurantes. Me encanta el ambiente que llevan! Mis intereses personal son costura, jardinería y cocinar.
    También estuve en varios proyectos de construcción donde mis maestros me dijeron tengo capacidad de aprender rápido. Mi proyecto favorito fue un laberinto de arte. Allí trabajamos con materiales como cemento, cerámica, plumavit y metal. Para producir varias obras de arte.
    Puedo coser a mano y con maquina. Tengo una máquina de coser y me gusta hacer mi ropa y vender varias otra cosas en pequena tiendas y cooperativas. Mi desafio es sólo usar tela y ropa vieja por materiales. A veces es difícil pero tengo una pasión por el reciclaje. Algunos de mis favoritas obras son de materiales encontrados en el suelo.
    Tengo un poco de experiencia en permacultura en algunas fincas en Latina América donde trabaje. Me parece muy interesante y tengo ganas a aprender más.

  • What else ...

    I consider myself to be very respectful and not afraid of hard work. I love live music of any kind and listening to stories of where people have been.
    I am really excited to be a part of this community for the last two years. I have used other networks like couchsurfing and feel that this is also be a great opportunity to do something a little different and learn something new.

    ESPAÑOL:

    Creo soy una persona respetuosa y no tengo miedo al trabajo duro. Me encanta la música en vivo de todos los generos y escuchar historias de gente sobre sus experiencias. He estado usando este sitio por los últimos dos años y estoy feliz de ser aparte de la comunidad. Es una a buena oportunidad para aprender mas.
