Hello I'm Ruby! I come from the central coast of California. I love experiencing new places and learning from other ways of life. I’ve traveled in Europe several times doing Workaway and now I’m looking to explore and hopefully relocate somewhere new in the USA. I’ve just recently left my job at a bakery in my hometown, now embarking on a new adventure with my sister Carmela (her profile is linked below.) We are currently traveling through the Pacific Northwest in our converted passenger van. I enjoy crafting (sewing in particular), cooking/baking, hiking, swimming, skateboarding, and really anything that will get me outside. I’m a hard worker and I always strive to do the best I can with the task presented to me. I am also a very flexible and adaptable person making it easy for me to fit in comfortably to most situations. I am very interested in learning more about gardening and food production (growing vegetables, making cheese, canning/preserving, working with livestock, etc) in a sustainable/self reliant way. I am also interested in viticulture and enology and would love to get some experience in the wine industry. I’m a curious person eager to learn new skills and open to new experiences and ways of life! There’s so much to learn from each other and I love being able to share knowledge through workaway.
