  • Description

    In 2016 after spending a month volunteering in Thailand I decided that office life wasn’t for me, even though I am thankful for what I have learned in the years that I spent in the field of architecture, and the years that I spent studying design, I came to the conclusion that what I really wanted was life in the countryside

    I then spent two years travelling and volunteering in Europe, South East Asia and South America, after which I took a two year break in Italy to work on a small natural building project. This project provided me with the opportunity to put into practice what I had learned and learn a lot more. It has been a challenging time, but really valuable nonetheless.

    Now I look forward to another chapter to deepen my knowledge in the field of natural building, as well as share with others what I have learned. I really look forward to learning about new projects, meeting new people and being inspired, finding new interests.

    When I come to your project, I will be happy to help you with things that I am already knowledgeable about, but also I would love to challenge myself with new things too. There is a little list of things that I already have experience with/that I could help with:

    - Natural building - and everything that comes with it, bit of carpentry and a bit of dry stone wall building

    - Permaculture - I have some practical experience of my own though not a lot, and a good amount of theoretical knowledge. I am always interested in learning other people’s way of applying permaculture principles

    - Cooking - I have many different styles of cooking depending on the occasion, healthy, less healthy, with or without gluten, vegan… one thing is for sure, I wouldn’t be able to cook meat to save my life (I don’t eat meat or fish). Also getting better at being organised while I cook. I love learning new recipes and sharing my existing ones.

    - Driving! - the latest addition to my skill set!

    I am fluent in English and Italian, my Spanish is also pretty good though a little rusty. I am hoping to pick up some Portuguese whilst in Brazil (spoiler alert: I didn’t)

    Since I have been volunteering for a while, I wanted to make sure my potential hosts understand that I will work as well as I am fed. I am happy with a simple accommodation, I can sleep on the floor, but when it comes to food, I NEED to be able to have access to a variety of grains, fruit and veg, not just rice beans and potatoes. I don’t need to eat anything fancy, I am almost vegan in fact, but I want to put my heart and soul into what I do for you, and to work 5 hours a day and do a good job, I need good fuel. I am a good cook, so I promise you won’t regret it. If you are not able to offer this then I am probably not the best workawayer for you.
