  • Description

    My main profession is building work but I also have gardening skills growing veg etc. Plus I work part-time as a photographer mainly charity do‘s and events. Also I like to travel to photograph landscapes for my yearly calendar i produce.
    I enjoy the countryside & visiting livestock fairs (I’m a member of National Trust and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust), up until recently I did have livestock animals, goats, pigs, horses and rare breed turkeys. I have a full, clean driving licence.
    I’m supportive happy person who enjoys sharing interests and ideas. I’m a resilient, artistic, creative, intelligent man here to help.
    PS: When I do ‘Workaway’ abroad I consider close proximity to your local airport and ease of reaching your location so if you are up a mountain or too remote I would not be interested (unless you pick me up from airport?). So if you contact me can you give me details regarding ease of reaching your destination.
