  • Description

    Hello Workaway community,
    My name is Simon, i'm 28 years old and i live in Montreal in the province of Quebec, CANADA. I do love my city, it's good to live here, people are awesome and there is tons do to all around. But this summer i'm looking for other adventures and beautiful people i can meet anywhere around the globe.
    Im used to travel across Quebec and Canada, and I've been all along the west coast of America. Mountains and northern landscapes are what really fulfil my spirit, but i also love the cultural aspects of cities. I do find it important to spent some time close to nature. It's been a long time i've been wanting to participate in a workaway experience.
    I have studied film and music and i am to pursue university this fall. My main occupation is working as a music composer (for film, dance and theatre). Being a musician also means that you have to sometimes work on the side. Therefore, i have experience as a cook, gardener, graphic designer, stage technician and as a helper in renovation and general maintenance. I am very curious ; the world and the people fascinate me, this is why I love to learn new things. Im a hardworking guy that loves to work in team. I believe in the sharing of passion and knowledge :)
    I am a very respectful person. I do not believe in violence in any way. I take care of my mind and body (I practice mediation 2 hours per day). I am patient, independant and I like to create and make things beautiful !

    /Cooking - I love to cook ! I've been working as a cook assistant at different restaurants. I fell comfortable in a kitchen, and I have no problem cooking for a group.
    /General Maintenance - I've been doing some minor renovation on different apartment blocks. I am most skilled in painting. I don't have any official formation, but I have worked as an assistant on different construction projects.
    /Help with people/tourists/computers - In the last 10 years I've been working in coffee shops and a youth hostel. I have no problem with customer service, and I love to meet travellers. I am also good with computers (graphic design, building website, social media).
