More details about your skills
I'm an active person, I like many outdoor sports, especially the ones that require a board, like surfing and skateboarding, I also love climbing! I've been practicing skateboarding for a long time, I also started teaching it this summer!
I enjoy cooking, I like experimenting new ideas and putting them on a plate! I can definitely be a helpful guy in the kitchen! I'm a fast learner and I enjoy manual work, recently I did a complete makeover of my bedroom with some DIY wood projects found on the internet! I would like to get involved in any project that could be about renovating a room, creating new spaces, fixing something...
I'm also passionate about photography, I recently helped my brother promoting his NGO, where I volunteered for one of their projects in Rome this summer. I had the chance to work with children with special needs such as Down syndrome, helping them shape surfboards out of paulownia wood, and I was also creating content for the non-profit's social media pages, whereby I published some of my photographs and videos.
I've enjoyed music for as long as I can remember and I started playing guitar two years ago, I'm really obsessed with it and I would like to progress much more!
I'm really interested in new experiences and have been lucky enough to have travelled a lot already in my life. I am proficient in English but I'm also keen on learning other languages.
More details about my language interests
I would love to learn French, Spanish and Portuguese
What else ...
What else? I can play chess, I'm really interested in interior design and architecture and I am pretty good with children and animals too! I have 2 small nephews, a dog and a cat and I come from a large Italian family!
