  • Description

    Hi I'm Bruno
    In my life I was able to experience many beautiful holidays. Now I came across the website of Workaway and find it very interesting. Such an experience is still missing, and I would like to experience it in 2019 in the English-speaking area. This is also a good opportunity for me to improve my English skills.
    Professionally I work in Switzerland as a computer scientist. In the company where I am employed, I lead various departments: internal IT, apprentice training, infrastructure. I also manage some large customer projects in the energy industry and measurement data management.
    My hobbies are sailing, skiing, hiking and cooking. In my spare time I also work as a junior coach for sailors. In the sailing club I am also on the board and as such active on various occasions.
    In my spare time I am always involved in handicrafts (electronic, wood, metal, machines etc.).
