My name is Greg, i was born and raised in Budapest. I have been using WA for 2 years now and it totally worked out for me, i could grow, learn and share with a lot of extraordinary people. i am not planning to stop anytime soon.
'Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.' – M. G.
I tried like 15 hosts and some of them offered me jobs, friendships or a place to stay anytime i am passing by. I am originally a landscape architect with an ecological motivation, trying to find a way to create "homes" that are semi-selfsufficient, fun to live in and easy to build. I also had the chance to learn other skills like cooking in professional kitchens, processing wood, starting with felling onto building with self made planks. I learned how cheese was made or how to build interior for a small home or teach snowboard. I was lucky enough to work on my communication and leading skills, managing a project with an always changing international group. My philosophy is to be a leader not a boss and if someone knows better just listen to him/her, the focus is on the project not on th individual achievements however i feel responsible for helping others to get the most out of themselves by motivating, inspiring everyone on the team.
'i suppose leadership one time meant muscles; today it means getting along with people.' - M.G.
I am looking for places where i can improve myself and the environment the same time, where i have a role, a bed and a chair at the dining table. I am looking for people who are open and eager to change and learn. I feel like we are living in the most interesting time of our civilization without even realizing the potentials, the opportunities but the truth is we can actually make a change.
