Hi there! My names Ruben and I’m 22 years old from Leeds in the UK. I have a passion for adventure as my belly rumbles and bumbles waiting to consume all the world has to offer! The last few years I have been studying Geography in Liverpool and loved every second of it. The course (and my general up-bringing) has groomed me into a very eco-minded being with a real passion for the environment and all things nature. I love being in the great out doors and utilising natures offerings in a sustainable manner, strongly believing in the motion of geo-engineering. I am a very easy going person who enjoys a drink and a laugh but also loves getting hands on with tasks and believes strongly in earning ones keep.
My plan for the moment is to travel anywhere and everywhere and get involved with as many eco/sustainable projects that I can, no matter how small or large. I hope this would further enhance the knowledge I gained whilst studying and perhaps ensure I profit from a more ‘hands on’ perspective than achieved in the class room. I also hope that knowledge and skills I have gained can be transferred to potential hosts!
In my spare time I enjoy activities such as hiking, climbing, travelling, swimming, cycling, yoga, making music, exploring, bit of football, getting creative and ultimately… chilling!

I am keen environmentalist so feel would be a valuable asset for hosts looking to do some research into preservation or understanding of the local environment - or more hands on tasks that fall under similar branches. I have a keen interest in permaculture, sustainable building, increasing biodiversity / re-wilding, and re-connecting with nature but would like to increase my experience in all these areas.
I am great with children and animals, and have often cared for them in the past.
I have a TEFL qualification so would be willing to help with anyone who would like help improving English.
I believe I have a range of transferable skills that I have acquired from working a variety of different roles from selling coffee machines to working in breweries!
Sadly only English at the moment!
