I have been working in organic agriculture in home country (USA) for the last 4 years. I have completed a 6 month apprenticeship course in agroecology and sustainable food systems. My passion is farming in an ecologically healthy manner. Agroecology is the combination of traditional farming techniques with modern science. I have a fundamental understanding of sustainable agriculture so I can help with any farming projects on my travels. I always love learning new systems and cultures. I spent one year traveling around South America in 2014 where I volunteered on several farms and hostels. I also spent 6 months working for an agricultural NGO in Rwanda in 2016. I spent the winter of 2017 in Ecuador volunteering as well. I hope to learn more about tropical agriculture systems and natural building and always improve my Spanish.
In my off time I like outdoor sports like fishing, hiking, swimming, soccer. I am also a sociable person and enjoy going out with friends at night.
I am a native english speaker and I speak spanish proficiently.
