  • Description

    (Note: For the time being, I am pursuing a paid position in portugal and am no longer active as a WorkAway volunteer)

    Hello! I am a WorkAway volunteer, traveling around Portugal.
    I am American by birth but now carry a Dutch passport. I grew up in Nigeria, West Africa, studied in Michigan, USA and have lived the last 25+ years in The Netherlands. I dance Tango, like to sing, and am learning to play the guitar. I try to practice a bit of Ashtanga Yoga. I have a CELTA diploma and I am also trained in massage.
    As well as volunteering my time and skills, I am also interested in options for more long term or paid work.

  • More details about your skills

    I have worked as a house painter and have many years of DIY experience. My 20 years of employment doing maintenance for an American Embassy taught me basic skills in carpentry, plumbing, electrical, tiling, plastering, floor installation etc. I am also a photographer, a painter, and have reasonable computer skills (technical and creative). I almost always find a way to do something, even if it isn't the 'standard' solution. I like creative solutions. I can work very independently, but love sharing a job with someone.
