My name is Jacopo, I'm Italian, I have lived in London (UK) for 20 years and I've been traveling since 2014.
I used this site at the beginning of my travels, then I've been doing mainly housesitting (looking after houses when home owners are away) through other websites, and I recently joined Workaway again.
At the moment I'm in Faial, one of the beautiful Azores Islands (Portugal).
I am a friendly, open minded person and I love helping all types of people.
I'm usually very passionate about what I do and tend to be a perfectionist.
I'm always looking forward to hearing from hosts that I can help with my skills
Also happy to hear from other travellers

I am a professional photographer specialising in music, portraits, events and reportage, a Wordpress web designer, and I now also have my own web startup, which is related to photography and film. I'm also very interested in technology and blockchain.
I studied photography and web design at the London College of Communication and my images have been published in a number of magazines and newspapers in the UK and abroad. They have have been used by The Economist, The Guardian, Reuters, Channel 4 and many others.
In 2008 I set up a small photo/film studio rental business in Greenwich, East London, which I sold in 2010.
This gave me the opportunity to learn/improve my skills in the following areas:
- Answering email and phone enquiries.
- Welcoming and helping existing clients.
- Meeting potential clients to show them the facilities.
- Web Design: using Wordpress.
- SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).
- Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr)
- Web Analytics: Google Analytics.
- PPC (Pay Per Click) Advertising: Google Adwords.
- Email Marketing: using Mailchimp.
- Online Booking Systems: integrating on websites and managing reservations/invoices.
I am also familiar with Photoshop.
Before studying photography and web design, I also completed a 1 year full-time Diploma course in Health & Sports Therapy
English (fluent), Italian (mother tongue), and Spanish (basic).
I have my own Mac laptop and I bring with me a professional camera and lenses.
I would prefer to find a host that can offer a private space (flat/bungalow/house/motorhome) with own cooking facilities, for long term work exchange (1 month or more), but I'm also open to other offers. I love historic houses!
I can provide copies of my qualifications on request.
I have included some photos below. For more information, please feel free to ask and I can send you links to my websites.
I'm happy to speak on the phone or arrange a video call on WhatsApp.
In addition to work exchange, I am also offering housesitting, taking care of properties when owners are away.
