  • Description

    Hi, my name's Mathias and i'm a permanent nomad, so to speak. I strive for knowledge and self-sufficiency, therefore I'm eager to learn any practical craft and trade you've experience with. Even if you think that you might not be able to offer teaching or interesting projects, contact me anyway. Life often offers a lot of unexpected opportunities after a brief talk to a stranger.

    Fields i have varying knowledge in (there is room for improvement in all of them, of course):
    - Landscape gardening and all related tasks (building walls, terraces, wooden decks, pavements, ponds, stairs, foundations, etc.)
    - Construction
    - Handling heavy machinery used for constructional and agricultural work (tractors, excavators, wheel loaders, dumpers, cranes)
    - Handling of chain saws, brush saws and other lumberjack tools
    - Tree climbing license for rope-supported arborist works
    - Pruning, cutting down and felling of trees, making firewood
    - Grafting fruit trees
    - A lot of skills that are necessary for a self-sufficient lifestyle (lived on a self-sufficient farm for over 2 years)
    - Poultry keeping
    - Bee-keeping
    - Small engine repair and maintenance
    - Roofing
    - Welding
    - Carpentry
    - Bushcraft/Survivalism/Preparedness
    - Butchery (Roadkill)
    - Naturopathy
    - Functional bodyweight training
    - Cooking (for up to 20 people at once)

    What i am especially interested in learning everything you know about:
    - Electrics
    - Alternative energy generation
    - Mechanical work on engines and complex machines
    - Bushcraft/Survivalism/Prepping
    - Sewing with the machine (want to sew my own gear)
    - Naturopathy and Ayurveda
    - Amateur radio
    - Anything about handling ships, including navigation at sea
    - Avionics

    Other things worth mentioning about me:
    - Assertive, resourceful and hard-working
    - Independent and low maintenance
    - Comfortable with living and working in solitude
    - Able to planify and execute projects on my own
    - Able to adapt and improvise
    - Valuing honest and respectful relationships
    - Empathetic
    - Autodidact
    - Animal-loving
    - Drug- and alcohol-free
    - I wont take part in actions with the intention of, either directly or indirectly, harming a sentient being

    Looking forward to hear from you.
