  • Description

    Hi, I'm Ben! I grew up in Toronto, Canada. I spend my summers working in western Canada as a tree planter and the rest of the year traveling and volunteering.

    I have been traveling on and off for the past 6 years, and i have come to realize my favorite parts are learning new skills, and about new geographic places an ecologies. I find I enjoy my experiences much more as an engaged member of a community than as a passive tourist.

    I work well with my hands and enjoy working outdoors. I'm a relaxed person, hate to stress over the little things, which allows me to do work that requires a fair bit of patience. I have experience working in hostels, hotels, food delivery, home renovation, farming (primarily mushrooms, but also some ground crops and livestock) swim teacher/lifeguard and outdoor maintenance. I also speak decent french.

    I look forward to meeting you!
