  • Description

    Hello Everyone,

    I am new to this platform and very excited to discover it! - It may just save me from this London consumerist bubble ;)
    Ok, so I am a Scottish Italian sculptor living in London. I work as a freelance prop maker/artist for films, museums, festivals and commercial art fabrication.

    My background; I went to a Steiner school (not everyone will really know what that means ;) ). I grew up in Bristol, Venice and Barcelona. I have always loved to work with my hands, I like to build and make things, from cooking to construction.

    Who am I....really, I am a free-spirited, professional and hard worker. Although I like big cities, their fast-paced and intense cultural stimulation. I really miss/ yearn for simple back to nature isolated moments. I grew up in a Steiner community; pulling up carrots, docking lamb tails, homoeopathy, arts & crafts and lots of the outdoors work.

    I am hoping that Workaway will give me the opportunity to reconnect with these pleasures as well as discover random communities and improve my vegetable gardening and learn about eco-building / sustainable building technology (my dream is to design and build my own home in a wholesome community).

    Things I enjoy and do :
    Food markets
    Trying new strange foods
    Asain food!
    I am obsessed with audio books
    Music
    Festivals
    Dress up parties
    Silly games like charades & sardines
    Card games
    kickboxing
    kayaking
    dancing
    Making bomb-fires and toasting marshmallows
    Making cakes
    Watching TED talks.
    Light Chinese lanterns
    Cocktails
    Mountain walking
    Customing things
    Red wine and cheese
    Science programs
    Documentaries
    Travelling
    Skiing
    Horse riding
