  • Descripción

    Hello! We are a queer American couple who are new to Workaway, though are both experienced travelers, especially Kate. Julia also has experience with Couchsurfing.

    Kate is a documentary filmmaker and Julia works in city government on website and process improvement. We are both ready to put this work down and explore career shifts. We also live in Austin, TX but are ready to move elsewhere and put down roots in a land-based community. We are taking this next year to participate in, learn from, and contribute to different communities, and are excited to explore ways we show-up in these spaces. We are looking for spaces where we can experiment with alternative ways of living and discover what brings us joy and what we each excel at. Additionally, we're interested in doing interior and exterior design and event production. Julia would like to explore her creativity and reconnect with a more hands-on style of creation, like when she was an industrial design student working in the woodshop, creating sculptures or functional pieces out of recycled materials, painting, building/making structures, etc.

    We are also ready to chip in on other projects and tasks. We are hard, diligent workers who are resourceful and take initiative. There is always some aspect of personal growth and healing that we're each working on. We're both generalists who pick skills up quickly and know a little about a lot of things. We are activists on a range of intersecting issues that are very important to us.

    Beyond this, we are fun and playful! We love to host and attend theme parties and creative events that transport people to inspiring, imaginative, and rejuvenating places. We dance a lot. We love being around people.

    Covid: Living in such a high-risk country, we are accustomed to sharing and advocating for our Covid precautions, needs, and boundaries, as well as respecting others’. We’d like to ask a few Covid-related questions and get a sense of where folks are at when the time comes.
