  • Description

    My name is Brett, I have grown up moving around the south of British Columbia in Canada. I spent alot of time on my grandmas apple/peach orchard throughout my childhood, and have always loved working in the garden. Being outside is my passion and I am more than willing to do any type of hard work involving the outdoors. I love to learn and explore, so whenever I'm not working I'm either hiking, swimming, climbing, skiing, or playing with my dog.

    I am interested in long term commitment generally (more than a month), as when I travel I like to experience the sights and culture of a small region in its entirety, rather than just staying for a couple weeks and leaving without soaking up everything the area has to offer.

    I am working at a ski resort until April but after that, I will be looking for a host. I can't wait!
