I am currently
Hello friends! My name is Tanner and I'm an Artist from Southwest Michigan, United States. I'm a very passionate and dreamy person, constantly being taken away by my imagination, and always looking for a creative and fresh take on things. People say I'm funny, one of my favorite things to do is make people laugh. I'm also a romantic, in pursuit of aesthetic arrest. Beauty and awe bring my passion and vigor to the surface, yet also a sense of peace.
I've had a passion for Italy sense I was a young boy, it's always been the first country I've wanted to visit. I went for a week when I was 20 years old with my friend's family and it was unforgettable but also too short. I'm now 28 and I regret not returning for so long. Always excuses, personal struggles etc. However, the prospect of returning has kept me going through all the highs and lows in my life. It has been one of the greatest points of motivation for me. I've been learning Italian on and off for 8 years in preparation.
I'm finally ready to return, despite all odds, and workaway seems like the perfect opportunity. I'm willing to work hard just for the opportunity to be in the country that inspires me. I want to grow as a person and live a fuller life, and I know in my heart that traveling will help me grow in ways I can't imagine.
