    HELLO, FUTURE FRIENDS...
    After all, strangers are friends you haven't met yet!
    I will try to keep it brief... 😆 Who am I kidding?
    Primero, en español...
    Tengo mucha energía positiva y quiero compartir mi alegría, mi experiencia, mis cuentos, y finalmente mi tiempo contigo
    Compartir es cuidar, no?
    Soy un person muy flexible y tengo tiempo ilimitado en momento. finalmente quiero conocer las culturas, la gente y solo quiero colectar experiencias, no cosas jeje...
    Puedo pasar mi tiempo hablar/platicar con los huéspedes sin dudas, cuando la vibra está buena, es natural.
    He estado con workaway desde 2013, y es única manera por viajar para mí, cuando posible y recibido invitación.
    Todavia había estado en 35 lugares con workaway en 17 países.
    Siempre quiero mejorar mi español y ya trabaje en muchas lugares solo con español. Sin opciones, estudias más, yo sé.
    había trabajado en Mexico, Espana, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Columbia y Bolivia con Espanol, entonces, siento suficiente comodo con la idioma, pero siempre la quiero y intento mejorar.

    In 2021...I began the year in Columbia, then I managed to see Bolivia, Brazil and Peru before returning to Mexico for a month. In 2022 I was in the U.S, living on a farm, working with dogs in Oregon them moved to Louisiana to manage a bar and then drove all the way to Baja California where I am currently.
    Everything always works out!
    You will hear me say the phrase "it could always be worse" more than once 😆(even have it tattooed on my shin) and for a reason. I aim to always be grateful and positive and focus on the blessings and what I do have rather than what I don't.

    According to my calculations, I've been on 35 Workaway jobs in 17 countries!!!!
    Workaway is really the ONLY way I travel and I have been very fortunate so far
    and so....I've been with workaway since 2013 and will continue using it whenever and wherever possible!
    I believe I've been in 80 countries so far though I've never sought to collect countries but experiences.

    If you're looking for personality, experience, energy, reliability, effort, leadership, team leading, as well as a team player, adaptability and of course good vibrations, you're on the right profile!
    I work well on my own, or as part of a team, whatever you need!
    I can literally talk and connect with anyone regardless of background or culture, you will usually find me chatting away at some corner of the world with the locals, camera or two at hand, trying to get that shot, or just listening to their stories!
    I'll try to keep in brief....try is operative word, as there's so much I would like to share lol 😂
    In 2019, I was on a trip through Mexico, ONLY with workaway, and ended up in 6 different cities, working hostels and improving my Spanish. I began 2020 in Guatemala on workaway and ended up working in 2 places in Nicaragua when the world changed. I ended up staying there 7 months. I finished 2020 in Columbia, on 2 great workaway jobs!

    I was living & working in Ireland for 2 years, managing, supervising and working in the Irish Bar/Pub scene in Central Dublin, as well as plenty of TV work on various shows and photography work in events.
    You might have seen some of the shows I've been on...
    Lived in England for 2 years, before that. Was a manager of a pub in central London as well as worked as a social worker/support worker for adults with criminal backgrounds (talk about a challenge) .
    During my time in Europe, I have traveled to most countries and have spent close to 5 years in total in the continent.
    I am an extremely well traveled individual who has spent nearly 3 years abroad in Asia/Pacific. Taught English in China. Lived & worked in Australia, China, U.S, Canada, UK, Ireland, Nicaragua, as well as have briefly lived in India, Spain, NZ, Thailand & many more.
    With Workaway, I have been able to stay longer in places and delve deeper into the culture and language and love the opportunity to get to know a new place on a deeper level.
    Mature, & dependable. Am socially adept at blending into any environment
    PHOTOGRAPHER in residence to many hostels I've volunteered for!
    EXPERIENCE with children, animal work, & plenty of Hospitality.
    I have experience with Animal care. Worked at a Dog/Cat lodge in the U.S.
    Volunteered at Animal shelters in quite a few countries and even at the Zoo once (Australian section. Was crazy fun!), plus, I worked once as a shepherd to more than 130 Goats/sheep in a remote farm, as well as Workaway with Dogs in Alaska, Greece (with 500 Dogs!!) and recently Portugal & Mexico.
    A nomadic photographer...u can check out my work at www.nomadicfoxphoto.com
    Or @gratefulfurrynomad on instagram
    Published in travel magazines and hope for many more. Even had National Geographic select a couple of my pics..
    My photos are also on Hostelworld, as I snapped many photos for hostels I volunteered in. Self-published 4 photo books as well as hosted exhibitions. Certified PADI advanced diver. Hiked around the world. Looking to learn new things, meet new people from all walks of life & have fun, and come away with memorable experiences! Been to all 7 wonders of the world!
    What I really enjoy is Animal work, or Hostel work, 2 fields one could never have enough experience in, I believe. Also the chance for a language exchange, hospitality, tourism & travel-oriented work.
    I always write down stuff, and once it's written down, I know it:P I have the leadership skills, the confidence and would always love to learn more. I often lived and traveled in countries where I had no other choice but to converse in the local language and loved the challenge.
    Posses the leadership and problem solving skills . Confident I can contribute anywhere, and am sure you will agree as soon as you see me work. Am also a good driver, should you need that.
    I believe in driving safe and not fast.
    I barely drink alcohol, don't smoke either.
    What I bring is character, personality, experience, leadership, reliability, dependability and trust!
    I have already contributed to a few of my workaway jobs through my photography work, helping promote their businesses and to this day, they still use my images and are grateful for it, so if I can help you grow that way, I would be more than happy to help, as I carry my own gear (though should you have extra gear lying around, give it here:P)
    My photos are displayed on their booking/hostelworld/own website

    I did write I would be brief, right?? 😂😆
