  • Description

    Hi, I’m Stefan and I’m traveling and volunteering in Portugal, Spain and France to experience communities and work on different projects.

    My first apprenticeship was blacksmith, followed by engineering technician and over the years I worked in lots of different building related trades and crafts. I restored historic buildings with traditional techniques for the regional heritage conservation. Roofing with natural slate, carpentry, replicas of metal hardware on doors and gates, restoration and new build mud, stone and brick walls as well as final rendering with lime.

    I have also a solid experience in plumbing, sewage systems and electric installations.

    I still freelance in web development, that was more compatible with changing locations, but I love the feedback of physical work.

    I spent many years volunteering, learning and teaching in meditation retreats in Australia, the US and Europe and I still practice thoroughly yoga and meditation.
    Last year I spent 6 months in India to deepen my yoga practice.

    In 2019 I would like to contribute to projects in Portugal and Spain while having in between some city/internet time to keep up with freelance work.

    I love baking and cooking, so I’m sure I can contribute in this areas to community happiness too.
