Hi, I’m a middle-aged lady, I’m classically trained as a concert cellist. Born in America of E. European roots, I ventured off to take a job with the radio orchestra in Ireland when I was 23 and have never looked back! My family consists of two young sons, who have their own lives and my “mission” in China and helping conservatory students on their way here in Amsterdam to independent housing. I started up a charity which I run with my ex. We supply live chamber music and jazz ensembles to old folk’s homes for entertainment! My project is to make my private flat, where I host students, as nice as possible. I have lost, unused space on the rooftop and in the attic! I need creative designers and a person who can use a hammer and nails to build some planting boxes. Also some painting walls would be nice! The floor in the attic is plain wood and needs stripping and refinishing and the insulating ceiling tiles. I would love to use the attic as a recording studio and practice room!

The area is top, I’m a professional classical musician, clubs, cinema and concert halls are all a stone’s throw away. There is a public library with WiFi (pay as you go or buy a year’s membership for €30) around the corner.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Build, create and grow a working rooftop garden. I do my own compost and vermiculite. We need boxes for growing veggies as well as decorative plants, plants and a watering system.

Hi-my best friend was one of the original hackers of the internet set up here at Universities back in the early '80's. Then he improved the memory card for the Apple II home computer then imported it to Europe via Steve Jobs. He even got it into Russia through Serbia! Having said all that, I only used unlimited wifi data. You can get one of those accounts too, while staying here and working with me on my projects! How does that sound? Best wishes!
