    HI THERE! :)


    I am 28, from the south of Germany (Bavaria), a materials engineer and I am travelling since April 2019 around Europe (Portugal, Iceland, Färoese Islands, Denmark, Greece, Spain & Italy). At the same I did an Erasmus-Semester 2019/20 in Aveiro, Portugal, to finish my degree. So far, I´ve done five workaways: on a dairy farm in Iceland, on an olive farm on Crete in Greece, in a nature hostel in the north of Portugal, in a british bed & breakfast in the north of France and on a little farm in Germany, that offers animal-assisted therapies for children :) Other non-workaway jobs (fulltime) on my journey included a lot of farming, bars, warehouses and harvesting and many other jobs.


    In 2020, when the corona outbreak happened, I went back from Portugal to Germany and worked almost the entire year in agriculture, farming & harvesting (milking cows on dairy farms, harvesting berry fruits, asparagus & kale and much more). Only the summer (August & september) I spent in Frankfurt working on a new thesis topic for my graduation (nanocrystalline alloys).


    So far I have a done a lot of different jobs, both related to my field of studies (material sciences) and jobs in other areas, such as gastronomy (waiter / service, catering, delievery, bartender, barista, kitchen), security, farm work, office administration and IT. As a student I worked in companies such as ARRI Cine Tech, the Fraunhofer Institute for solar Energy, Bourns Sensors, MTU Aero Engines, Element22 and VAC Vaccumschmelze.


    Despite German I speak fluent English & Spanish, currently also learning Italian. I like running, swimming, surfing (tried it in Portugal for the very first time :D), and love cooking (always like to learn more).


    Right now I am in Monte San Savino in Tuscany in Italiy. I am looking for a workaway for 1, 2 or 3 weeks in basically anything, me and my girlfriend can help with (farming, teaching, babysitting, construction, renovating, garden work and so on).


    !!! Excited to jump right into the next adventure !!!

  • Autres infos...

    I love to ...

    ... help with anything I can!
    ... akquire new skills!
    ... give my best. I do not do things by halves.

    My principles are easy:

    - Carpe diem, nam tempus fugit.
    - Work hard, embrace the pain
    - A little drink never killed nobody

    What I HATE:

    - Irresponsible people
    - Phony people

    The latter are probably the worst - for me being phony is the opposite of being selfless and helping out everybody, no matter what.

    • Régime alimentaire spécial
      I eat everything :D but my ideal is to become a pescetarian (vegetarian, but eating fish), and despite fish only (raw) fruits & vegetables), and very little dairy products (milk, eggs, cheese)
