  • Description

    Hello my name is Martin.
    I am a trained mechanic and a woodsman and tree surgeon. I worked as a mechanic in many different countries. I do have a great knowledge in all sorts of construction work. Especially wooden buildings. In Africa I even gave classes to teach the basic knowledge of construction work, like building foundations, how to mix concrete, how to reinforce it, bricklaying, painting etc. In another African country I gave classes to teach the basics of mechanics like the functionality of an engine, diesel injection etc. In the French Pyrenees I was designing, engineering and building agriculture machinery. I am a very good welder. Arc and Mig welding. I was cutting forest aisles, building wooden houses, replanting trees, maintenance parks, I do have a diploma to drive every machine which is hydraulic controlled. In Denmark I was working with children who had behavior problems and in Mongolia I was laying a floating parquet and was working as a construction manager, the list could go on for a while.
    What I am looking for is a place preferable a farm who has some forest work to do, no matter if it's planting, maintenance or cutting. I am very good in clearing out an overgrown area for example.
    Another job what I would like to do is working with agriculture machinery. I am not really looking forward to repair them, rather I would like to engineer and or build stuff. I would not mind of sitting on a tractor or any other machine for a couple of weeks. I know how to drive a digger as well.
    What I like doing as well is working with wood, building, repairing or planning.
    I could imagine as well to work with children in the age range between 13 and 18 years bad behavior or not.
    I am traveling in an old custom made Land Rover. I speak four languages (English, French, Spanish and German).
    My next trip will start soon. I am planning a trip to the North of Africa.
