    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hi, my name is Marco!
    I was born in a small town in Italy and now I live in Milan After over 10 years working for my family’s business I have decided to take a break and to travel more to expand my horizons, to keep growing and to challenge myself.
    I must say I am a passionate traveler and a good worker.
    So far this year, I have visited Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Japan. Now I would like to be able to prolong traveling life through volunteer work.
    In the past I have volunteered in Peru, Cuzco, in a community of missionaries that welcomes more than hundreds of children and offers food, school, hospitality and medical assistance. Recently I helped an association in Italy for two months that prepares meals every day for homeless people.
    I joined workaway beacause I love learning from new cultures and traditions, practicing mindful sharing and substainability.
    At home I like hosting and cooking for friends, reading books, enjoying art, practicing yoga and spending time in the nature.  
    Every year, since I was a child I have always helped out in the family country house, taking care of animals and helping in the olive grove.
    I have a degree in economics and I worked in marketing, sales and administration, I managed the bakery - pastry shops owned by my family and one restaurant. I also organized caterings and events. I am good in organization, office work and I dealt with Social media marketing and communication. In my company, I gave support in the kitchen and in the pastry shops, as bartender and sales assistant.
    I will be in India from January 1st and I am looking forward to fulfilling new challenging opportunities.
