  • Description

    I went to college to study computer sciences and I started to work as a programmer. 6 years later I started to feel meaningless and took a leave of absence. I did volunteer work in organic farms in Sweden and France and went to Thailand to teach English in a public school in a small village. I came back to give a second chance to my job but after 3 years I decided to quit for good. Already with some land in the countryside of Portugal I started a journey in Portugal for one year to know about eco-farming and permaculture. It was hard to settle down in my primitive place so I went back to Thailand to the same school wishing to help those children in their English and football skills. Last year I came to establish and develop Two years ago I settled in my farm. I planted some trees, made some vegetable patches, produced cider, wine, olive oil, jams, I dried figs, tomatos and apples, etc.. I love to work with nature and watch my project going but in winter time is the perfect time to travel, meet some new people, know other cultures and get inspired to come back again fully charged. I like new challenges, to learn and get inspired by the people I meet and of course, to give it back. I'm a quiet person but I really enjoy to use my human qualities in a group.
