  • Description

    * WHO I AM *

    I'm Josh, an adventurous, open-minded, responsible, and flexible fast-learner.

    I've cultivated a broad, dynamic skillset as a:
    - Project Lead and Core Developer on a nascent FinTech software project
    - Senior Member, Lead Copywriter & "Vibes Consultant" at WILDSIDE, a startup record label
    - CELTA qualified ESL teacher with 1 year experience
    - Qualified Yoga Teacher
    - Psychology Graduate (BSc)
    - DJ, Rapper & Theatrical Improviser
    - Author & Photographer for a collection of biographies & recipes for a Nepali nutrition project
    - Experience with cash auditing, spreadsheets and hostel night reception
    - Very competent cook
    - Amateur gardener, having grown my own kitchen garden a few years ago

    I believe in wellbeing through purpose, connection, contribution and laughter.
    I love feeding people, learning languages and exploring cultures while having tons of fun.
    I am excellent with children, non-judgemental and patient.
    I'm primarily vegetarian, but am more focused on the ethics, quality & sustainability of meals than their content.

    I recently fell in love with wild camping & cooking in the Scottish Highlands.
    Occasionally you'll find me writing songs and spoken word poetry.
    In recent years I've found homes in Vietnam, Thailand and Bali, and managed to explore Nepal, Mexico and some US states along the way!

    COVID: Doubled vaccinated w/ Moderna

    * WHY I'M HERE *

    I left my nomadic software job "to follow my heart", to further the health of our global organism and the shift of consciousness needed to live in balance.

    I want to use Workaway to contribute whilst exploring interesting niches to determine where I focus my future effort, for example:

    - Rewilding
    - Ecological Construction & Materials
    - Humane Animal Husbandry
    - Intentional Community
    - Medicinal Mushrooms & Plants
    - Bioremediation
    - Resource Management
    - Permaculture

    Though I have minimal experience in these areas, I am in passionate awe of these topics and I am determined to grow fast. I am looking for hosting environments where I can learn practically, on-the-job and by osmosis.

    * HOW I CAN HELP *

    As an honest & humble team player I throw myself hard at projects I connect with, from ideation and execution on projects big or small, to day-to-day maintenance tasks & upkeep.
    I'm capable of self-direction & decision making, so I can happily work independently as needed.
    Whatever skills I have, along with buckets of enthusiasm, will be available during my stay.
