I'm from Edinburgh, Scotland and worked in the Forestry Commission for many years doing various admin jobs including Forest Holiday Operations Manager, looking after cabin and campsites throughout Britain. I have interests in gardening, art, photography, running, cycling and yoga. I like gardening and getting involved in any outdoor work.
I took the option to leave work early and I'm now interested in trying different things including voluntary work overseas, particularly France. Willing to try anything and keen to learn new skills.
Between 2011 and 2017 I spent most of the spring and summer doing Workaway in France, lots of garden work but also house painting and house and dog sitting. When in Edinburgh I'm a self employed gardener and tend my new vegetable allotment.
My wife, Carol, also worked for the Forestry Commission and is keen to try the Workaway experience. Carol speaks Spanish and French, enjoys travelling and experiencing new cultures.
