From: United States
(Currently in Argentina) I am a 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 about organic farming, being self-sufficient, permaculture, spirituality, plant base medicines, ketogenic diet, helping others, and the community. I have long left my former life working like 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 more than 4 years in South America working and volunteering. After South America, I came back to the states then spent another 8 months volunteering and spent some time in Portugal, Spain, Morocco, and Thailand.
I desire 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 than 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. I've helped build ditches, chicken coups, helped build houses out of clay, painting, plastering, etc. I love nature, agriculture, landscaping, carpentry, permaculture, vineyards.
I am a native English speaker, fluent Spanish speaker, and can speak intermediate Portuguese. I have also worked in Hostels in Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, and Brazil.
I have multiple skills. I have held several jobs in my lifetime from working Wall Street to detailing cars. I have worked in Hostels in Argentina and Brasil, so I can definitely be of assistance in this area. I have manual labor skills, carpentry, farming, painting, permaculture, etc. Even though I have had many experiences, I still have a lot to learn so I do claim to be an expert but more of a hardworking willing assistant desiring to improve my knowledge and experience.
