Awe struck by images of mummies high in mountaintops, tribal dances and creepy-crawly food showcased in the History Channel and National Geographic, I knew early I wanted to be a world traveler and scientist. At 15 I discovered anthropology as a field that would let me do just that. 10 years later, after designing and teaching classes, publishing, working on forensic cases and going to international field school's, I've graduated as a masters level anthropologist.
Since graduating I have been travelling, stopping to work, then travelling more. I think of it as making my own fieldwork while at the same time living happily the way I wish. I also work with a social-benefit group as Research Coordinator. This kind of lifestyle allows me the time and ability to prioritize reading and writing and also encourages my love of learning!
Workaway is relatively new but I have stayed at a few places and had a wonderful time! I very much appreciate the opportunity to learn new skills while also helping incredible people realize their incredible dreams. In my experience, workaway tends to attract motivated, big dreaming and big hearted individuals that I am grateful to be a part of.
With staying, since I travel in my car I am otherwise self sufficient and don't expect much beyond a place to be. I go to workaway's in the hope of establishing mutually gratifying relationships where I am happy to work hard in exchange for opportunities to learn new things and be exposed to different viewpoints. It's what anthropology is all about!
I'm game for almost any kind of help (there aren't any I can think of I wouldn't want to do!). All I hope for is that hosts be communicative of their needs and expectations and have some understanding of my introvertedness and occasional need for alone time. Please don't hesitate to email me with any questions or want for more information- I am a very honest and forthright person and look forward to more workaway opportunities.
