I’m a biologist and nature lover. I'm energetic, happy and hard-worker. I want to live in a less material way, connecting to both nature and people. I have travelled a bit through Europe, Africa and Asia, doing different volunteering projects and getting inspired by each encounter. I'm looking forward to work in eco-comunities, farms, art projects, nature-related places and to dive in permaculture, bioconstruction and sustainable life-styles, while meeting inspiring people.

I’m the second of 4 siblings, I was a scout for 16 years and that’s basically how I started to volunteer and to get in touch with charity work.
I have a degree in architecture but I haven’t worked as an architect so far. Instead I chose to travel, volunteer in different projects and work in different areas to learn the most. I don’t think I have a job that defines me, but the things I dedicated more time to in the last years were both adventure sports and helping in the refugee crisis.
Right now, I’m traveling together with Rita and there are many things we seek to experience. I’m personally focused on learning as much as possible about permaculture, agroforests, sintropic agriculture and bio-construction in order to apply this knowledge in my home country in a place where I wish to live in the future. Apart from this I’m always looking for chances of rock climbing or doing other sports and exploring nature.

We believe in the core principles of workaway, so we expect to have food provided by the host.
