We are Gabriel & Narviz, a happy no-drama velezuelan/argentinian couple, long time travellers. We are looking for work and volunteer opportunities that allow us to live new experiences and keep connecting with locals and travelers around the world.
We've already volunteer/work in hostels, guest houses and rental business in Colombia, Panama, Guatemala, Mexico, Spain, Italy, Turkey. We've done mostly reception and management tasks. We've also volunteered in Costa Rica as housekeepers and in Morocco helping with light building and maintenance of a riad. We're good with cleaning, we both can cook and we are always open to learn/help with other tasks.
We both have college degrees. We are social but not hard party people. We don't smoke nor use drugs neither. Social drinkers. Flexible, no-drama and simple people.
We are digital nomads and we work online a couple of hours a day. We are glad to share time with our hosts as it make a better experience. We prefer long stays.

Problem solver. I learn fast about how things work.
I've mainly got experience managing online rental channels (AirBnB, Booking.com, Expedia, Hostelwold, VRBO, FlipKey) and dealing with daily reception tasks (checkin, checkout, payments, customer service, selling tours, side services, etc) but I have an administrative background too.
Also I have knowledge on developing web sites and computers in general.
I've experience working in a all inclusive 5-star hotel environment.
PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, Information Systems Engineer.
I speak English (fluent), Spanish (native) and some Portuguese (brazilian).
