  • Description

    I joined Workaway because I love travel, meeting interesting people, sharing my skills and learning new ones! I'm a skilled builder and have many other talents. Carpentry is my specialty, so I will not do new building projects without pay. But I will offer hosts a heavily discounted labor rate for new projects. I will do repairs and minor renovations unpaid, as a volunteer. If you need someone that is handy, with good attention to detail and experience, I can help you. I also have a considerable amount of experience in hospitality. I managed a very nice B&B in the wonderful city of Amsterdam for approximately 6 months, and can provide a good reference. I've also managed a hostel in Guadalajara, Mexico. Art, nature, music and science are some of my greatest passions. I love to paint and draw. So working on art projects during my travels is something I'd really enjoy. Hiking, canoeing, kayaking, cycling are some of the outdoor hobbies I enjoy the most. I have a great respect for the natural world and connecting with it is important to me. In college, I studied biology and have a passion for conservation. Getting the opportunity to possibly do some volunteering in this field is one of the main reasons I signed up for Workaway. It would be a dream to work with organizations that do the job of protecting the incredible habitats and wildlife on our planet. I'm happy to be part of the Workaway community and share some amazing experiences! Please feel free to contact me with any questions about myself or my travel plans :)
