  • Description

    I have been self employed for 30 years and am now retired. I am an Irish national and have been living in Ireland for about two years. Now I hope to do some traveling around the EU and Valencia is an exciting place to start! Tree and landscape work are my specialty. Also, I have done quite a bit of handyman work such as minor carpentry, electric and plumbing and help renovate 4 houses. I am proficient with power tools such as chain saws and carpentry tools and small equipment such as skid loaders and tractors. My skills and interest include organic gardening, forestry management, fire spinning/prop manipulation/dance, guitar and sing, harmonica, Djembe drum . I love Zumba! I have practiced yoga and the healing arts for many years. I am very healthy and fit. My diet is vegetarian and sea food (pescatarian) and as organic as possible... I have had chickens, horses and goats and helped build chicken coups and barns. I hope to be able to do some fishing! I have a United States drivers licence.
