  • Description

    My name is Darren, over the past 5 years and 50 odd countries I have been acquiring skills, building knowledge whilst also sharing cultures and making a positive impact on the people and families that have hosted me.

    Over the next decade I plan to expand on this by exploring more countries, absorbing more knowledge and culture whilst constantly striving to have a bigger and more positive impact on the planet, nature and people. In order to do this I want to follow my passions for sustainability and for coaching/ mentoring. So I will be doing a number of Sustainable projects through Work-away each year, and taking the necessary qualifications.

    I thrive off adventures and consistently push my comfort zone daily, I have a passion for adventure sports such as climbing, long hikes, archery...

    I try to lead a healthy lifestyle and focus my diet around plant based whole foods (vegan), with the occasional fast food/ comfort food.

    I'm able to manage building projects with helping with children/family jobs, being the oldest sibling and helping to raise my brothers and sisters and also baby sitting certainly helped.
