    In a world were you can be anything, be kind.

  • Description

    I am here to meet new people, use my time and talents to help others, learn and embrace new cultures, see new places, get a lot of work done, and have a lot of fun along the way!

    A little bit of background information about me:

    I decided to stop existing and start living as a proactive global citizen. In the past year I have:

    1.
    After 15 years, I walked away from the business world because I realized that people and experiences are more important than any amount of money.

    2.
    Adopted a healthy lifestyle and lost 130 pounds.

    3.
    Solo backpacked the world starting in Egypt. From Egypt I kept going and eventually visited Albania, Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia, Denmark, United Kingdom, Mexico, Belize, Peru, Dominican Republic, Italy, Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Romania, Greece, and 48 USA states.

    Fast Forward:

    In May of 2021, I decided to sell everything I own, leave the USA, and backpack the world as a nomad permanently. That's when I discovered Workaway! Let's do this!!

    I did my first Workaway during June 2021 in the Tuscany region of Italy, preparing a summer villa for use this year after a year of no use (due to COVID).

    I've now done WorkAways in Italy, France, and Belgium. All have been wonderful experiences for which I am grateful.

    *I am fully vaccinated, having received the first dose of the Moderna COVID vaccine in March and the second one in April. I have my vaccine card to prove this and I am happy to provide you a copy for your records.

    *I have international travel insurance.

    *Can drive both automatic and manual transmission vehicles. I also carry my own international vehicle insurance.
