  • More details about your skills

    I studied mechanical engineering (BE) at college and am currently doing an online evening course in data analytics. I tutor mathematics to engineering college students.
    I have experience planting trees (I grew many trees from seed at our family home) and doing some small scale vegetable gardening. I enjoy working with my hands, and wish to learn practical DIY skills such as carpentry, construction, plumbing, mechanical repairs, traditional crafts, etc. My first ever job was with the Irish Seed Savers, who work to save and promote Ireland's food crop heritage.
    I have a good work ethic and am happy to see a task well done! Because of this I am inquisitive - wishing to to make sure that all is clear!

  • What else ...

    I like the outdoors (hiking, swimming, scenery), some sports (table tennis, football, sailing), cooking (usually not following a recipe), pets (both dogs and cats), browsing through books and, given the right setting, having meaningful conversations. I am open to being around people of many different viewpoints and opinions.

    I recently did a sailing trip from Ireland to England in a wooden yacht (profile photo). I was the "crew" and my friend the "skipper". We travelled continuously to our destination (the coast above London), taking only one stop along the way for supplies. So, for 7 days we took shifts at the helm, which was an experience! Other than that I have done little sailing, but if you have any sea stories I would love to hear them :-)

    My online course runs 2 days a week in the evening and I will spend some other evenings learning the material, this along with work and meeting new people keeps me busy!
