Hi, I’m Stefan and I’m traveling and working in France to experience communities and engage in different projects.
My first apprenticeship was as blacksmith, followed by engineering technician and over the years I worked in lots of different building related trades and crafts.
I restored historic buildings with traditional techniques for the regional heritage conservation. Roofing with natural slate, carpentry, replicas of metal hardware on doors and gates, restoration and new build mud, stone and brick walls as well as final rendering with lime.
I have also some experience in plumbing and electric installations.
I had a farm for 7 years and kept goats, pigs, horses and a Jersey cow, so I’m familiar with taking care of animals and general farm works.
From my jobs over the last years I’m routined in forest works, clearings, landscaping and firewood production.
I spent many years volunteering and practicing in meditation retreats in Australia, the US, Europe and India. I still practice regularly yoga and meditation.
I love baking and cooking, so I’m sure I can contribute in this areas to community happiness too.
In 2021 I would like to contribute to projects in France, despite I’m still struggling with the language I like the country, its culture and food.

It’s really time to improve my French beyond the beginner level.
I’m really excited about the experiences I gained through my workaway jobs and travels. I met amazing people and learned to adapt my skills to different contexts, from absolute improvisations to big budgets. This has become a way of life and I’m looking forward to new adventures and challenges.
