I am a 45-year-old man from Scotland originally. Over the last 10 years I have been mainly working voluntarily on organic farms and smallholdings (usually through the wwoof network), initially for over a year in Ireland, then four years in Spain, and ultimately three years in the Canary Islands where, on the island of El Hierro I had the opportunity to cultivate my own organic vegetable gardens (over a period of almost two years), selling and eating what i produced. I am a musician and play the trumpet, tin-whistle, treble recorder didgeridoo and piano. I also have some sailing experience and last year sailed from Gran Canaria to Trinidad (arriving 8th April 2016). I have helped with two projects in Trinidad ( http://www.wwoof-caribbean.org/host-list/24069-one-family-farms/ and http://www.helpx.net/host.asp?hostID=36683&network=9 ), three in Colombia and three in Ecuador.
In Scotland when i was younger I studied mathematics, did computer research, worked as and art model, busked and played trumpet in a variety of bands in Dundee and Glasgow.
