I'm a friendly and fun loving Australian travelling through beautiful South America. I am on a 1.5 year trip which started in March 2019. I love meeting new people, and sharing stories from around the world. I am passionate about Technology and computers, as well as building, specifically wooden furniture. I am also very interested in sustainability including energy generation and farming.
I am an adventurist who loves the outdoors and experiencing nature first hand.
I grew up in country Victoria in Australia where I lived on a Horse farm until I was 12, and then moved to a lovely beach side town for School. I have spent my later years living in the city and although I get out to the wilderness from time to time, I do miss the country life.
I have worked in customer service for most of my career and specialise in team management. I am a genuinely helpful person, it is one of my strongest qualities. I have a lot of patience and love to teach my knowledge to others.
I am an animal lover, especially cats and dogs, but also horses since my childhood is filled with many great memories. I am also a nature lover, and enjoy growing edible plants which is a never ending learning experience.
I love to cook with people and learn new cuisines as well as eating local foods in every place I visit. I am a beer and wine lover and don't mind a quiet enjoyment with company.
I am new to workaway and have completed a 3 week stay at a Bolivian farm where I put my carpentry and furniture building skills to good work. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and wish to share more time and skills with other workaway families. I have a great work ethic and don't like to leave jobs half done. I'm confident my history, past experience and my attitudes toward life speak for themselves.
Help with Computers / internet
I am skilled in customer service and team management. It's been my career for the past 12 years and is something I'm passionate about.
I also have quite a broad knowledge of construction and building, as I have assisted my father with building our family home. I am also a wood worker, specifically with furniture. I studied engineering and enjoy designing strong structures in my furniture. I am proficient with using many power tools, as well as gardening equipment and have operated machinery in the distant past (tractors, mowers, etc).
I am very knowledgeable about technology/computers and love all things cyber and tech.
I am a native English speaker, and am learning Spanish during my travels. Currently I speak the spanish of a 5 year old child and growing! I like to speak in spanish but I can only use more basic words. My vocab is growing every day :)
Don't let the beard fool you, I'm actually not a caveman who shaves his cheeks. I'm only part nerd, but I'm full science geek. I am capturing my travels on my instagram page @glenn_dub please visit to see where I've been to and to gain more insight into me.
Special dietary requirements
I eat everything and I'm not fussy
