  • Description

    Hi
    I would like to help you and contribute to the best of my ability to making your project successful. I have good work ethics, responsible, friendly, happy, and easy to get along with.
    I have been on the road for several years, mainly in Asia and India, I find that workaway gives me the opportunity to interact on a deeper and more meaningful level with the local people, culture and area.
    I also enjoy walks in nature, yoga and meditation, and generally living a healthy lifestyle.
    Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. Thank you 😊
