  • Description

    Hello! Joel and Jess here!

    We are departing from the USA to explore the world and hopefully we will have an opportunity to meet you! We have left our corporate jobs to travel and reconnect with people and the world for a while. During this current adventure, Joel will be traveling part of it alone and part of it with his Partner in Crime, Jess. We love being active, and spend much of our free time practicing yoga, playing music, and building things. We have many interests, enjoy learning new things and meeting people who project love and fun. A little bit more about us each.....

    Joel's hobbies include music (playing , listening), cooking everything, building things, languages, rock climbing, mad sciencing, animals (including dinosaurs), people!, fishing, hiking, teaching.... and plenty more! Previously, Joel spent his time as an aerospace research developer.

    Jess' hobbies include art, dancing, yoga, collecting rocks, painting things, building things, music...Jess is a civil engineer.

    We will be traveling where the wind blows us for the next few months and into 2018. We're very excited to meet new people and share what we have to offer to build a stimulating international community!

  • What skills do you have?

    I have a lot of experience working on farms, gardening, cooking, and building. I also really love to learn new things! I was also a college professor, teaching chemistry for a number of years, and so I love to teach if that would be of interest. I have also practiced yoga avidly for well over a decade of vinyasa-inspired yoga.
    Jess is an amazing artist and is very creative in everything she does. She is also a certified yoga instructor, healing touch practitioner (energy healing) and also loves crafting and building! We have constructed a number of tiny homes in our hometown and do many other construction and craft projects.

    We are looking to settle ourselves, do some interesting work and connect with people during our travels.
