  • Description

    Hello, I'm Matt. I have always been drawn to travel and meeting new people. I have been using workaway for a number of years now and had some life changing moments in beautiful places with even more beautiful people!

    I love building, fixing, mending, working, re-working... anything that evolves working with my hands really! I trained as a carpenter after leaving school and since then I have been using that skill everywhere I have gone and learning new ones along the way.

    How I describe myself as a person.. I am kind hearted, polite, respectful, positive, energetic and honest, which leads me to be honest about the challenges I face (we all have them, I choose to be open as people are more accepting than I knew until I started being open) I feel a bit lost in myself at the moment, the busy hectic lives of the city folk are daunting and I don't know where I fit into that. I have odd days where everything feels too much and I have too work hard inside to find a positive within.

    I enjoy writing, its my way of expressing myself and getting things out. I'm not so good at sharing what I write, so finding a place where the people are accepting and encouraging would be a real step forward.

  • What else ...

    I enjoy writing and story telling, the performing is something new in my life so certainly not very good! I really like making and fixing things, any wood work or little projects. I like getting out walking and keeping fit (2020 has challenged that, got a few pounds too shake now!)
