  • Description


    I'm Nicolas, nice to meet you virtually :) Back in August/September 2021, I traveled by bike from Geneva to Edinburgh. I was planning to settle here so I did a Workaway and now I live in the city center of Edinburgh :)

    I was born in Annecy (French Alps) and I work in music (event manager, booking bands in Central EU, UK, Canada..). Because of the Coronavirus I'm interested to practice and develop manual skills for house maintenance (gardening, pruning, painting...). My biggest goal is to create an autonomous cultural center. At least a little cosy venue in some countryside to recreate social links between people and generations. For example, rehabilitate an abandoned place (cafe, school, mansion, house, etc.) and make it a municipal project. This is truly my life goal :)

    I'm also interested to work with old people (help them in daily tasks and also maintain their homes). I would like to familiarize myself with children but I don't have any experiences.

    I do a lot of sports (biking, running, fitness, hiking), I love cooking and doing some urbex photography (exploring abandoned castles). You can check my Instagram "" or Facebook "". I love EVERY musical genre (jazz, hip-hop, soul, rock, pop, classic, metal, the nostalgia from old movies music 50s 60s). My mother is a pianist, I listened to Debussy all my childhood. I played a lot of guitar but the desire does not come back to me often now.

    I like spending time alone to recharge my batteries, like waking up early, listening to natural elements, taking a walk as the sun sets, reading...I am interested in Buddhism, geopolitics, ecology. I see myself as an open-minded and sharing person. I'm truly not a materialist person. I like simple things and nature.

    What about you ?

    Hope to see you soon :)
