  • Description

    Forever curious about this beautiful Planet Earth/Ocean of ours, while my tempo and tongue are Caribbean, I am a multilingual, multicultural citizen (European mother, Caribbean father).

    Am 'allergic' to (plastic) pollution, fastfood, driving in traffic. Am in love with the Ocean (all things aquatic), smiling, my dog, fresh air, the natural world, good food, meaningful conversation and connections (human and other animals), sunrises & sets. Active & Independent. I am happiest by, in, on or near the water. I believe in purposeful and simple living, slow food, the kindness of strangers, and stopping to smell the flowers.

    A full-time marine conservationist by profession, in recent years I have transitioned to being an independent consultant to pursue other interests and a more nomadic lifestyle.

    At this point, I have decided it is time to move my base from Jamaica (where I grew up) to Europe. My parents live in Rome, Italy. I do not have siblings, and now feel that I need to and want to live closer to them. Life is short, and the time I have with them is limited. I am investigating southern Europe (either south Portugal and Italy) and think that a number of Workaway experiences will serve as a good ‘test run’ as I want to possibly set up a small agrotourism and ecosystem restoration business/project focused on land/water restoration and stewardship, multi-day ‘adventure/exploratory’ tours involving watersports (SUP, surfing, diving) but also cultural exchanges, experiencing traditional food, etc. I shy away from using catch phrases but something along the lines of ‘purposeful travel’. As I worked in the marine conservation and fisheries field for many years, my dream would be to marry that experience with my love for the ocean, being outdoors, traveling, paddling, genuine food/people/intercultural exchanges and connections.
