Hi my names Austen! I’m 26 and I grew up in a country town in middle England called Kenilworth. In more recent years I’ve lived by the sea in Falmouth, Cornwall studying photography/videography whilst surfing and creating in my spare time.
I left the UK in December 2017 to travel India for 4 months and then went hiking in Nepal before flying to Australia to live and work for a little while. After spending several months in Melbourne I’ve bought a vehicle and have embarked on an exploration of Australia heading up the east coast.
I joined workaway with the ambition
to expand my horizons, learn from new encounters, meet like minded and friendly people and hopefully gain some local knowledge of the places I visit.
Having worked on farms for many years as both a farm hand and a sheep shearing contractor I’m no stranger to physical work. I have also worked as a landscaper and private gardener so can offer my green fingers. I have a broad spectrum of abilities and I’m a quick learner able to work independently or collaborate with others.
I’m a big lover of the natural world and feel at peace hiking through forests, wild swimming in rivers and waterfalls or jumping in the ocean. Appreciation of nature is what brings me most joy. Amongst other things my interests include surfing, reading, drawing, painting, cycling, swimming to name a few.
