Hi there! International development professional looking to do some soul searching, food growing, animal stewarding, and/or manual labor in 2020 :) I've had the privilege of living in many different places and its really been the people I've met on the road thats made that fulfilling. I love a challenge and learning new things, being out in the elements, and tend to spend evenings reading, writing, or unskillfully strumming a guitar.
I've worked in international development (for NGOs, the UN) for about seven years now, but before that I did a lot of handier things!- setting up community gardens, driving a box truck, teaching kiddos in summer programs, bartending, etc. I love being outside and getting dirty, have extensive experience taking care of dogs and cats and some with horses as well. Would love to deepen my knowledge of farming and animal husbandry! I speak fluent Portuguese and can get by in French.
Yogi, novice surfer, lover of backpacking/camping, a good campfire sing-a-long!
Special dietary requirements
I keep vegetarian/pescatarian, but am very flexible- do so for environmental reasons
