  • Description

    We both quit our 9to5 engineering job to help the world make a better place, trying to put our technical and other skills to use in an environmental and social way.
    Janick can help you with technical stuff related to computers or other electronic devices, but he can also accompany you in birdwatching and exploring/taking care of nature. He is a freelance photographer/videographer. Examples on http://www.instagram.com/jcphotography1987
    Janick has a passion for mother Earth in every sense. From being fascinated by how vegetables grow to understand how everything in nature is related. He has many interests that vary from gardening and hiking to renewable energy, minimalism and saving energy, to playing music, self-learning, and meeting (like-minded) people.
    Back in Belgium, we had our own little city vegetable garden on the balcony growing our own red peppers, kohlrabi, salad, kale, tomatoes, and red cabbage.

    Natalia is a real foodie, she is an amazing cook and can introduce you to the great Asian cuisine. She likes fresh local produce and can give an Asian twist to about everything but she can also think out of her Asian box and come up with such great recipes, preferably vegan. She has been a head chef in a professional restaurant for 2 months (through Workaway).
    She doesn't mind physical labor as well and she is always up for learning in whatever way possible.
    Natalia is really into upcycling and everything related to reusing materials (also in the kitchen).

    We both love children (we don't have any yet) and can also help taking care of them. Janick has babysit experience for 10 years (kids ages 2 to 12) and loves being around children.

    Conclusion: we can help you with all kinds of diverse things because we consider ourselves flexible. From technical geeky engineering stuff to nature-related tasks and everything in between...
