  • More details about your skills

    I have grown up in a family enthusiastic about the outdoors which has led me to become a lifeguard and a qualified paddle sports instructor. I have also worked as fruit picker on a strawberry farm this summer. I have also volunteered coaching children in a variation of sports including squash and hockey so I enjoy working with kids. I help out at home with cooking and maintenance of our small patch of land so am willing to work hard and learn some new skills.

  • What else ...

    Some other sports that I am interested in include skiing and swimming and I am currently training for a 12km sea swim. I have a younger sister who is arty so I help her with projects and like to paint myself occasionally (not very well though). I love to play card games including gin rummy and cheat.
