    ABOUT ME
    I'm adventurous, love to have fun and care deeply about making the world a better place. For the past 5 years I have been working in not-for-profit start up businesses. I started an organisation that renovates and reopens community spaces, I helped set up an organisation that supports local governments to find the most talented new employees, and now I run a series of interactive events that help people to explore themselves and their relationships. In my spare time, I spend time with friends, go to see live music (there's some great jazz in London), play sport (judo and football) and I volunteer in schools running workshops with boys around masculinity / what it means to be a man.

    WHY I WANT TO WORKAWAY
    I'm coming to Chile to spend some time away from London and to discover a new culture. My plan is to stay in Chile for a minimum of 3 months, I hope I can stay longer. I've had some amazing experiences doing Workaway in Brasil and Portugal, and it's always been a great starting point to learn about a country. I want to Workaway in Chile so I can start to learn about the culture immediately.
