  • Description

    Hi !

    My name is Thomas. I am travelling the world with the will to learn new skills. I was educated in computer science and, in my youth, most of my time was spent behind a screen. I now want to learn how to make things in the "real" world. My interest are, but not limited to, cooking, woodworking, construction and gardening.

    In 2016, I moved away from France and traveled around south east asia, while still working for my IT employer in France. By June 2017, I quited my job, enjoyed a fun summer in Europe and then started a hitchiking trip from France to Iran. On the way I tried to learn a little bit of the local languages and cooking habits.

    People often say about me that I am quiet person. Though it is true that I am not the most forthcoming person at first sight, I think time helps me build relationships that are meaningful. I love listening to what people have to say and witness the world.

    I have a great interest in reading and will read whatever comes under my sight, though I enjoy novels a lot more than essays. Oh, and what better than having a good tea to go with that...

  • What skills do you have?

    I can cook. I do not have a lot of recipes under my belt, but again, I am here to learn. I think I can be a good chef assistant as I handle knife and dish washing really well.

    I am tall (192) and athletic (in a way): I never really practiced sports but I know I can be endurant. I think this would be helpful in outside, effort requiring tasks.

    But most of all, I’m willing to learn. I’m frankly signed up here to learn from people as much as I can and am motivated into contributing to my environment as much as I can.
