I'd love to try all kinds of work; I'm always keen to learn new things! I'm in decent shape for physical work and don't smoke. Will eat just about anything, though tend towards an organic and low-meat diet when cooking for myself.

I really enjoy being outdoors all day, regardless of the work & weather. My favourite way to travel is by bicycle :)
