Hi, I'm Mathis, i'm a 24 years old french guy from North of France (from the champagne region!)
I finished my master's degree in packaging development last year, then I worked for 1 year in the research & development department for an agro-food company (vegetables).
I decided to leave my current job for a minimum of 1 year break in order to travel, discover other cultures, improve my language level (especially Spanish) and obviously to meet and share great moments with new people.
This is how I discovered workaway and immediately signed up.
I grew up in the countryside with cats, dogs, horses and all other farm animals so I have experience in animal care.
When I was in high school and college, I was also working during summer breaks in the fields and vineyards (harvest), in markets and supermarkets (sometimes at night) and I did a lot of jobs and services like factory work or gardening, so I am not afraid to the effort and to have my hand dirty.
I love team sports (especially Football that I practiced in a club when I was teen), hiking, biking, skiing and I tried surfing last year and I directly fell in love with this sport and this state of mind, even if I'm a real beginner for the moment !
I'm also a music lover, I really listen to any style, from classic to techno, including Cuban music, rock or rap and many other kind of music. I also practice a little of drums and beatmaking with my friends.
I describe myself as someone who is willful, open-minded, smiling and always ready to laugh, but don't worry, I know to be serious when it is necessary to be!
But most of all, I especially want to learn new things, in new places with new people!

More details about your skills
I speak English fluent and also speak French native. I could also teach it as part of cultural exchange.
I'm also a good cook thanks to my mom and my grandmother, I could help with kitchen tasks.
As I said, I grew up in the countryside with animals, worked in the farm and the fields when I was young, so I know the basic of farming, DIY, gardening.
I could help with anything physical or skillful. I like teamwork and also I'm a good teammate.
More details about my language interests
I can obviously teach French, which is my native language. I'm also here to perfect my English and I really want to improve my Spanish!
What else ...
I can adapt to almost any diet, so i'm not picky. I always curious to try new kinds of food.
I also have the objective to learn to be an experienced surfer to be able to go on a surf trip anywhere in the world.
Anyway, like everyone else, it's impossible to fully describe myself on a profile page, that's why I also love to tell and discuss anything with anyone!
