  • Description

    Hi there! I am a midlife, empty-nest professional full of adventure, creativity and compassion. I enjoy immersing myself in different cultures and reciprocating kindnesses as often as possible. My friends and acquaintances find me to be pleasant company, honest and uplifting.
    My hobbies and favorite past times include (just to name a few):
    -dancing Argentine Tango
    -hiking (I am a pilgrim of the Camino de Santiago)
    -rock wall climbing/newbie rock climber
    -cooking
    -traveling
    -learning new languages
    -freelance voice over actor

    In addition to the WA experiences listed on my profile, I've also done exchange experiences:
    -Thailand (helping with dual cultural wedding, guest teaching English in rural schools) during February 2013/March 2014
    -Northern Ireland/Scotland (detailing a 42' cruiser and assisting with light crew assignments) for the month of July 2014
    -Moroccan Sahara (cultural exchange, teaching conversational English and association support for nomadic community) November/December 2014
    -Northern Ireland (historical home redecoration, garden arrangement, painting) May-July 2015
    -Midwest United States (daily living skills assistant, equine therapy stable hand, interior painting and wallpaper removal) September-November 2015
    *I can make available reference of my hosts upon request.

    Here's a link to a note I posted on FaceBook at the time I began my workaway travels early 2014… hopefully you will find it to be a good insight of who I am and my intentions.
