  • Description


    Hi, I'm Sean. I have lived in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island for my whole life. I am new to the workaway thing, but I am excited to see what the future holds and what kind of awesome people I may meet through the process. I believe that life is greatly shaped by the people who you meet. I am intrigued by the concept of workaway, and I admire the people who can just leave their home to explore this vast world and experience what life has to offer. I hope to gain insight and inspiration to perhaps venture out on my own one day in a similar fashion.
    I have 2 houses on my property, one of which is rented by a nice family, so it's a comfortable and welcoming environment here, always with visitors from the neighborhood and social gatherings.
    I am a lover of music, of all types. I play guitar and drums, so I appreciate other musicians.
    I am self-employed and I have a range of knowledge and experience which I don't mind sharing. I enjoy exchanging ideas.
    I have a nice house with 2 empty bedrooms which I would like to share with travelers and explorers from around the world. I like to meet new people and share different experiences and cultures. I'm always up for learning and exchanging knowledge and perspective.

  • Help


    General house and yard maintenance, horticulture, household cleaning and gardening.
    I enjoy vegetable gardening and try to produce as much food as I can for myself. I raise chickens. I also like to work on small construction and mechanical projects and I also do autobody and painting so there's always something to do around the yard.
    I don't expect a lot of work, just some assistance in daily tasks and ongoing projects. I am pretty easy going.
