  • Description

    Hey there!
    I'm 19 years old, finished high school last year in Germany and decided to travel across Canada for one year. Meanwhile, I have been to quite a few workaway spots, and so far I'm really enjoying it. What I like the most about workaway is that you get to meet "real" Canadian people (and other Workawayers from around the world) and really get to know the culture.
    I'm a friendly and funny person who usually doesn't like hanging around and doing nothing. I love photography as well as taking and editing videos, playing instruments and music in general (I'm traveling with a ukulele but don't expect me to sing haha :D). I also like reading, hiking, swimming, snowboarding, all kinds of juggling and I love to fool people with magic tricks! Just ask me to show you some. :P I did artistic gymnastics for about 10 years before I broke my arm one year ago and I'm still quite athletic, but probably not the strongest guy you can find. Always down to try out new sports though!
    My English is pretty good since I learned it in school for 9 years, but of course I'm also here in Canada to improve it.
    I'd say that I'm a reliable worker, not afraid to get dirty and open to learn new skills and ways of life. I'm a fast learning person and a bit of a perfectionist, so I'm not afraid to ask questions if I didn't understand something. I want to get out of my comfort zone, meet new people and make new experiences!

  • What skills do you have?

    I'm able to work with computers and other electronic devices pretty well and got decent knowledge in gardening. I like almost all kinds of animals very much (especially cats; we had a cat in Germany for over 13 years), that's why animal care is something I love to do. I already got some experience since I worked at farms with many animals. Of course, housekeeping is also something I can do.
    When I came to Canada last year, I almost couldn't cook at all, but meanwhile I developed some decent cooking skills. Since I like taking photos, I'm a good photographer in case you need photos for e.g. your website. I'm also traveling with my drone that captures awesome aerial footage!
    I also have a bit of building experience and skills, but I would definitely like to learn more about it. I like designing stuff and being creative.
