Good Workawayer

Profile information

  • Our status


  • Description

    I love traveling and getting to know other places and cultures. I lived in Uganda for 3.5 years and would host Couchsurfing guests at my home. My favorite way to get to know people is by sharing a good meal and swapping travel stories and music/book/movie recommendations.

    I'm a pretty industrious and organized person who finds joy in doing things with care. I have never participated in Workaway, but would love to use it to see some beautiful spots, have more of a local experience, and hopefully work on some cool projects with interesting people.

  • What else ...

    Elijah likes to draw, and Katie really likes cats. We both like rock climbing, hiking in nature, and cooking.

    We are also big fans of the board games Settlers of Catan and Dutch Blitz. We hope you have one of these, because we forgot to pack both! But we like learning new games too.
