  • Description

    Howdy, I’m John from Texas and I’ve traveled and lived all over the world while writing novels and non-fiction books in my spare time.

    I have years of experience in hospitality—working as a host/registration supervisor at conventions back home in Austin ranging from 400 to 4000 attendees...along with professional experience as a front desk manager at both hostels and bed & breakfast hotels in the U.K., Norway and Poland.

    I am high energy, enthusiastic, outgoing and a hard worker. I speak Spanish, French and English.

    I’ve successfully completed 7 workaways since April 2019. Besides my hotel and hostel positions, I’ve also helped run an artsy bar in Koszalin, Poland, spent 3 months as the principal instructor at an English language school for children in Kiev, Ukraine and worked as a groundskeeper/carpenter’s assistant on a 5-acre estate in Lancashire, UK.

    I look forward to working with you!

    John from Texas
