HI, I'm Harvey a 21 year old student travelling with my 3 friends. I am a very sociable person and I find great enjoyment from sharing time with friends and family. I am very relaxed and easy going, and will actively seek new experiences in new places.
I have a strong passion for wildlife and the great outdoors. I've studied zoology at university where I also volunteered at a struggling zoo, where I played a key role in the enrichment and care of the animals. From a young age I have undertaken my own wildlife projects for instance I used to raise tadpoles and release the frogs at local ponds. I Have a drive for the protection and conservation of the natural world and its fauna. Coinciding with my love of wildlife I also take interest in the photography of animals, plants and landscapes. it is not something I am highly skilled at but something that brings me much pleasure It brings me much satisfaction being outdoors.
Whether it's playing rugby and football, cycling, walking, or camping the outdoors is my element. I often find myself acting as a team leader in sports and other similar scenarios where I have a competitive nature and I am driven to succeed in sports. I have a great passion for water sports also. also have indoor passions, I have a love of cooking which is a hobby that consumes my weekends, usually ending up with a kitchen full of delicious pizzas. I cook everyday and take great passion in it.
Another way I enjoy my rainy days is in the world of the internet, particularly YouTube where I find myself learning about all sorts of things and having a laugh while doing so.

More details about your skills
I have multiple years experience hosting, planning and running social events for both charitable and entertainment purposes, which have had great feedback and I've often been told I am "the life of the party" (excuse the cheesy line).
I have gained much experience and expertise across sports like rugby and football. Sports have allowed me to become a great team leader and organise people working in a team. During these sports I've found myself taking a coaching/leadership type role teaching and helping younger less experienced players.
Over the past 4 to 5 years I have developed my ability to cook from zero capability of boiling pasta without destroying the pan, to comfortability in cooking a range of dishes and having a general Knowledge of my way around the kitchen.
I have a great drive and strength when it comes to outdoor work and I am more than ready to put blood sweat and tears into a task (especially if it involves animals). I would add to this an ability to problem solve in many scenarios. whilst carrying a permanent Christmas belly, I am fit and healthy and am more than capable to overcome any physical challenge (except running).
I would say I have a great knowledge of the animal kingdom and the environments they live in. it is my biggest passion and I have watched just about all the documentaries there are to watch along with plenty of hands on experience with animals.
I am very capable of making people feel comfortable around me, a friend once told me I fill any silence with my voice. this is a useful skill to have and can help me in social situations as well as others.
I have had an on and off hobby of photography and can take some decent pictures especially wildlife and landscapes.
