I have been living in norway for the past 3,5 years (mostly on farms). I am a permanent resident in Norway and have been living pretty isolated with a few people in the past weeks in March (low risk of virus infection).
I am a cultural project leader by trade but have been working with food for the last 10 years as a cook, cake baker, barista or restaurant manager. What I am passionate about? Nourishing food, healthy soil, vivid communities :)
I think I am equally introvert and extrovert: I love living and working with others but I cherish my space and can stay alone for days, weeks, months (it has happened before!) without problem, I enjoy my own company.
I enjoy physical work but I can also stay still and peel vegetables or sort grains for hours, I like this kind of "meditative" work.
The last 6 months, I have been the cook for a team of 20 people in a big biodynamic farm. I can also cook for 30+ parties. I am a big fan of vegetables I must say, but I can't live off butter and cheese! (I am from Normandie in France, that's probably why). I can also bake sourdough bread, make yogurt or preserves.
The last 2 years, 2 months during the spring I have worked in Traena harvesting and processing seaweed (for human consumption), it was a great challenge to organise logistics on a remote place and work in any kind of weather.
I practice yoga on my own but very much as an amateur, love going for hikes or horse rides, and I am a massive fan of backgammon or any other board game (except chess, I never get it!).
I work part-time as a translator and I am currently translating a book from english to french and that requires some hours of work with computer + wifi, but I am very fexible regarding the working hours.
I am more of an A person, wake up early and goes to bed early.
I have volunteered on farms in the past, I am just not very confident with big tools or machinery but not afraid to learn.
Gardening (pruning, harvesting, weeding...)
Cooking, baking, making preserves, bread or yogurt.
A little experience with milking cows (machine) and goats (by hand).

I laugh and sing a lot, but if you're tired of it just let me know ;)
Ah, and I like dogs.
I am also one of the admins for Reko-ring Hamar
Indoor cats can make me sneeze sometimes.
