  • Description

    Hello. My name is Jon and I'm a former bar owner / Cinematographer and current builder who is looking for a change of atmosphere and the chance to learn something new. I have a background in art and construction and would welcome the opportunity to offer my skills in exchange for some new experiences in a different part of the world. It's always an adventure building things from the ground up and then seeing them grow on their own. I'm not afraid of getting dirty (I actually prefer it) and feel that good food and drink tastes much better after a hard day of work. If it sounds like I might be a good fit, please consider me for your next project. Thanks.
    p.s. - A few pet projects I'd like to work on are: building a bread oven, BBQ grill, outdoor kitchen or shower, outdoor deck/seating area, sauna/hotbox, indoor/outdoor bar... Basically the sort of things that aren't entirely necessary but once you have them you couldn't imagine living without them. If any of that sounds good to you give me a shout and let's do it.
