  • Description

    Hello! My name is Gabriel, I'm 27 years old and I'm from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In 2013 I graduated as a Geologist by the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, but never worked in the area. In 2015 I traveled for six months around South America and now I've just declined my graduation in Phylosophy because I want to start a new trip, see more of the world, see more of my own world.

    As experience I've worked in a cloth store for a time to lift money to make my trip; I've worked in farms, with dogs, horses, sheeps and doing gardening stuff; I've worked in family houses, taking care of pets and children; I've worked in hostels, helping at the reception, laundry, maintenence, painting, breakfast, etc... Also, when I came back to my hometown I worked a year as an English teacher.

    The trip I've made gave me a lot of good experience with which I could help.

    About my personality I can say I'm very respectful and easygoing. Won't go through the limits one would stabilish between us, and expect the same. I Love reading/writing, love working and accomplishing tasks, love traveling. I'm willing to learn new things or help with the things I've already learned, and to have cultural interchange with the people I meet.
