    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    My name is Jake.

    I think I am a down to earth easy going guy. I like to work hard and enjoy the simple things in life, good food, meeting interesting people and developing relationships and learning new experiences wherever I go.

    I've been working with a Hydro Electric Company for the last 5 years which I helped start with my Dad and older brother. I've been interested in Japanese language and culture from the age of 16 when I started teaching myself Japanese language. I love the outdoors and nature, I want to help people live and co-exist with the natural world in a more connected and beneficial way. I also really love movement and have practiced all sorts of things from Skateboarding when i was younger to juggling, Tai Chi and Dance. I particularly love dance and Tai Chi and would love to learn more if I am doing a work away. I'm also an aspiring artist looking to get a job in the computer games industry but am passionate about all types of art. I love going to galleries and seeing traditional and performing art.
