  • Description

    Just a quick write up about myself, qualified tradesman, worked as a foreman for an industrial plumbing company in Australia, qualified English teacher, currently working in 2 universities in Colombia and a boxing coach.
    I grew up in a Greek family surrounded by the tourism industry. Our family owns a hotel over on the Greek Island of Rhodos where I have spent many summer months getting fat from all the good food working in reception, house keeping, pick up/drop off duties for tourist etc. For the last 3 years I have been living abroad covering plenty of new cities, experiences and skills to lead me outside of my comfort zone. Currently I am based in Cali, Colombia. Here I co-manage a gym for fighters (boxing, muy thai, kick boxing etc) while being a contracted English teacher in 2 of the city's universities. In my free time I volunteer at a foundation for people with special needs. In a city that has changed my life completely I try to keep busy with work while still having plenty of fun.
    I have been apart of 6 workaway gigs (mainly in tourism) the past 3 years as well, making the most of this great system and style of volunteering, enjoying every single second of it.
    Would love to hear from any hosts who think I may be of service to you.
    Thanks, Costa
