Ich bin gerade
Beginning of 2018 i decided to quit my job in finance and leave my home country to pursue long term dream and spend 1 year in New Zealand, exploring its beautiful nature, culture and learn photography along the way. During my stay i wanted to try volunteering as i considered it a perfect opportunity to get to know local people, be useful for community and possibly gain some new knowledge as well. In those 12 months which followed i spent workawaying much more then i originally planned and it exceeded my expectations greatly.
My workaway experience in New Zealand involved common stuff like gardening, working around (and in) a house, baby and dog sitting, but also some special experiences like teaching kids in local school, helping with preparation of photography exhibition or preparing pet photo portrait.
Before New Zealand, most of my adult life I spend working for corporations, consider myself skilled with MS Excel spreadsheets, calculations, forecasting, PCs as such. During my college times, i spent two summers in UK working for local farmer, helping around farm, but mostly selling dairy ´homemade´ ice-cream in various corners of the country.
Also spent some time working on construction sites where i was working as a iron fitter and general help.
Since i am passionate about photography, any job related to this area would be a big plus.
Except above mentioned i can offer my will to learn and be helpful, I am ready to handle new tasks as those are the ones which keep us growing.
After New Zealand I spent next 2 years in western Canada and since early 2021 I am back home in Slovakia, currently working.
One day I would like to workaway again, be it in New Zealand, Canada or some other new destination. Looking forward to more great experiences, life is too short to spend it just dreaming.
