    On a workaway in Åmotfors.

  • Description

    The hustle and bustle of everyday life in the modern world has knocked the wind out off me.
    Time to change things. So here I am.
    Hoping to experience something exciting and totally new to me.
    I am an outdoors person and I get immense pleasure and satisfaction just being in nature. I also paint although not to well and am learning to play a new instrument (drums). This I see as my creative awakening. I am openminded and embrace the opportunity to experience new things, meet and greet new people and cultures.
    So hopefully I can get my working gloves on soon!

  • More details about your skills

    I have experience with metalworking which includes welding, fabrication, blacksmithing and welding.
    This was my first trade after leaving secondary school.
    My second occupation is as a surveyor. So, measuring and laying out constructions could be of assistance!
    I also helped renovate an attic apartment in an old historical building in the Engadin Switzerland. This involved constructing work and assisting the different tradesmen.
    I am a quick learner, can work on my own or with others. Listen to other people and their ideas, many roads lead to Rome😊
    So all round I could be an asset in many projects.
