  • Description

    Hi! I'm Paddy and from August of this year I'm signing off on my job and spending my time travelling the world trying new things and meeting new people. I've worked in a variety of jobs in my life from basic prep and cleaning in a butchers, waiter and barman running drinks service for weddings and functions at a hotel and in health and safety at a large multinational. I enjoy learning new skills and can pick things up very quickly. Particularly on doing things that don't involve sitting behind a desk for hours on end!
    I absolutely love spending time outdoors, cooking (and eating), trying new things and chatting with people over drinks (of any kind). In my spare time, I play drums, try and play ukulele, occasionally sing a bit and volunteer as a Scout Leader.
    I look forward to meeting you out on my travels!
