Hi, I'm Julian, 31 years old, Master Degree in Energy, Building Services and Environmental Engineering.
I am very passionate about animals and nature/environmental conservation. I think everyone should try to keep their impact on the environment as low as possible, reduce our waste and pollution and care for the animals that habitat our planet.
Over the past years, I learned a lot about the environment and sustainability. As I already love nature and animals I try to live more consciously.
Living abroad (one year in Vilnius, Lithuania) really opened my eyes what life for me is really about. I don’t need much to be happy. And happiness is key!
Working with people, putting smiles on their faces, supporting the community or just small gestures that make people laugh just make my day.
Otherwise, I'd say my character is super easy to get along with and I'm an open-minded person. I'm friendly, polite and really like to laugh. I enjoy deep conversations and finding out how others live their lives.

I am generally a fast learning person. I like to make things by myself and I love to be in the nature and experience new things and cultures/cuisines.
I spent a big part of my childhood on a farm in the village I grew up - so I'm used to animal care, harvesting, hard work etc.
After school I was working as a facility manager, all kind of works in and around houses are familiar to me.
During the 9 months of my mandatory community service I worked for the DRK rescue and ambulance service. Therefore I have basic knowledge in first aid and taking care about patients.
In my studies I learned a lot about sustainability, renewable energies, climate protection and much, much more environmental topics.
A short list of skills I have - to name a few:
- gardening (I don't have that many experiences with gardening, but I'm willing to learn about it and also to do some hard work, whenever necessary.)
- craft activities
- general maintenance
- take care of children and animals
- help with tourists
Besides my mother tongue German I also speak English fluently and right now I'm learning Spanish (at the very beginning)
I'm super excited about my first workaway experience!
