My name is Gerard, I'm a 23 years old guy from Terrassa, a small city next to Barcelona, when I was 18 yo I became a Workawayer, and thanks to it, I got experience in many, many fields, from kitchen work, maintenance and gardening, to monitor aid, and thanks to these experiences I even got to work as a proper kitchen aid or as an English monitor in a summer camp.
Last summer I graduated from my degree, but right now finding work as a product design engineer is quite hard, as I do not want to lose a year spent at home in quarantine, I want to travel around Northern Europe, to help people in their projects, and learn from them. I want to rekindle the interests I had to put aside during my degree. And for once, I decided to take all the necessary time to experience life, to travel slowly but intensively and, who knows, to find a vocation or a dream place to live :) I am very open about this whole adventure coming ahead!
I love working with my hands, from building to maintenance, I have learned many techniques from painting wood working and metalwork, I know how to weld (stick only) to how to solder, I know ho to cook but always with a cookbook or a recipe, I know how to follow instructions, and finally as I have worked in kitchens and hotels I know how to clean, from cookware to entire rooms.
I am a person that enjoys many things in life, I like sports, like skiing, rugby, hiking, climbing... Furthermore, I like arts, although I fare better with plastic arts, sculpture and painting, I love music, but I am definitely arrhythmic, so I can't play any instruments or sing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I hope to be able to come spend some time in your projects and helping around, thanks for having read my brief but chaotic description, I hope to see you soon!
I would like to say I'm a Jack of all trades, master of none, thanks to my degree my main skill is 3D modelling, but I have quite some extensive building and fabrication knowledges, from electronics and 3D printing to wood or metal working.
Thanks to job experiences and workawaying I also have experience on:
-House maintenance (clean water and drainage pipping, wood and metal construction, painting, electricity...)
-House cleaning (hotel room cleaning, toiletry, large dining rooms...)
-Kitchen helper(cooking, dishwasher, potato peeler...)
-Waiter and event helper (leading people to places, or organizer aid in festivals and restaurants)
-Summer camp Monitor and English tutor
I am not a picky person, I can work as many things and I don't complain, although I have much more experience on handyman work
