  • More details about your skills

    I am a qualified carpenter and spent 5 years in the trade. I would like to say I am practical with my hands. I have used my skills for other workaway hosts by building and constructing windows, doors, bookcases and more out of wood. All of which I have enjoyed doing. Power tools are something I really like working with. I would be happy doing a range of manual jobs like, Gardening, digging, painting, plastering, cooking, and anything else. I have a beginners understanding of 12v electrics. I enjoy very much living off grid and like most of all to be surrounded and connected to nature. I believe I show a strong interest and enthusiasm for anything I do. I am also very sociable and like to have a laugh. I have been learning spanish at night class for the past 2 years and have a grip of the language. But I would not say I can speak spanish yet. But I am an enthusiastic speaker. I have done bar work before. And have good people skills.

    Where I feel I can be most of use, is applying my skills and knowledge for a off grid community in nature. Where I can apply my self to construct, maintain, and help somewhere with good ambitions grow.
