I didn't even know this was an option, but it could be pretty cool to share these experiences with someone else.
I live in China, but might move away this fall. Looking to learn
and practice alternative building and permaculture. Am a teacher
and hotel operator by trade. Intensely curious.
Last years I traveled for several months around the world, primarily in Europe, but also in South America and Asia, along with a road trip in the USA.
I'm a very positive, energetic person and I thrive on learning new things and making new friends. That being said, I also love settling in to read a good book, listening to some M. Ward or Fleet Foxes, and watching a campfire while singing harmony.
Since graduating with a bachelors in History, Politics and Religion in 2011, I have spent 3 years teaching English in China and 2 years working at an award-winning Hotel at reception/reservations in the United States. I have also spent a year working part-time at a thrift store and an independent book store, concurrently, and a couple other odd jobs.
It's been a few years since I've ridden a horse, but I was taught by my grandfather when I was young. I've practiced archery a bit, but wouldn't call myself that experienced. I like to sing and play guitar and write music, but I'm no Bob Dylan. I know how to scuba dive, but I only have my basic open-water certification. I'm currently enrolled in an online PDC course, but haven't gotten very far with it yet.
Jack of all trades, master of none. I am willing to learn anything you can teach me!
Though I am truly interested in just about anything you're willing to teach me, some particular interests are: Permaculture, alternative/sustainable living, self sufficiency, ecological designs, cooking, cob buildings, childcare, teaching, survival skills, terrible puns, and nerdy books and movies.
