unterwegs auf Reisen
We are two travelers driven by sustainability and reciprocity, and are very interested in using our skills (and learning new ones) to give back to the land and community. I (Malia) am from Kailua-Kona, Hawai'i, and Matt is from San Diego, California.
Before coming to New Zealand in November 2019, we were working as Naturalists and Outdoor Guides in Juneau, Alaska. Though we miss the bears and salmon, we're very happy to be in New Zealand!
Since joining the world of work exchange, we have helped maintain trails and native bush, including weeding, digging and planting. We've worked with power tools building a chicken coop and a weed compost. Matt has worked professionally in landscaping and is confident in his abilities with yard maintenance and machinery, and under his supervision we have completed various landscaping projects including building a rock wall.
In addition to general work exchange we are experienced and trusted in house sitting and pet minding for dogs and cats. We are always happy to send references!
We also have professional skills which adhere more to the social and tech sphere. I (Malia) have a professional background in marketing and communications and am comfortable in administrative and community manager roles. Matt is a junior web developer. We've done work exchange in community organization and events, and are adaptable to fill roles when needed!

We are outdoor enthusiasts, sustainably driven, creative, musically inclined, open minded people. We love to play games and belly laugh and have jam sessions and make authentic connections with people!
