  • Description

    (Currrently in Brasil) I am loving funny crazy free spirited guy who enjoys living life, learning new things, experiencing new cultures and speaking the truth. I believe humanity needs to disconnect from the matrix and reconnect with nature and a deeper meaning to life. I also believe in equal rights and justice for all.
    I am most passionate organic farming,being self sufficient, permaculture, spirituality,plant base medicines, helping others and community. I have long left my former life working as a slave for Financial Institutions for a more meaningful fulfilling existence of living in peace with other beings and nature.
    I am originally from New York of Argentine descent. Since October of 2013 I've spent 28 more then in South America 4 years in South America working and volunteering. After South America I came back to the states then spent another 8 monthst volunteering in Portugal, Spain, Morocco and Thailand.
    I desire to to help out in projects that really care about the volunteers as people and not just labor.
    Volunteering has taught me humility and a higher purpose for existing in this world other then being part of a system that doesn't work and does not make sense.
    During my traveling I have acquired different skills and useful experiences. I have volunteered on farms, fed cows, pigs, chickens. Ive helped build ditches, chicken coups, helped build houses out of clay, painting, plastering, etc. I love nature, agriculture, landscaping, carpentry, premaculture, vineyards.
    I am native English speaker, fluent Spanish speaker and can speak intermediate Portuguese. I have also worked in Hostels in Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador and Brazil.
