    Good Workawayer

  • My status


  • Description

    My name is Ryuichi and I'm from North Carolina in the U.S.. I've been in the US Navy the past 6 years and am taking some time off to travel before settling down with another job. I have volunteered in the past as an ESL instructor for Burmese immigrants in my hometown and am seeking opportunities to work with my hands while abroad.
    Workaway seemed like something right up my alley, a very cool, alternative way to experience a country while traveling.
    I enjoy hiking, taking photos, making/editing videos, and going to concerts. I got my OWD certification in Indonesia and AOWD in Koh Tao, Thailand and am always excited to go diving.
