MY BACKGROUND

Hey, my name is GaŽl, I grew up in the countryside and currently I live in the nice city of Nantes, France.
I have a degree in Business Informarics, I worked as an IT consultant for some time but quickly I decided to live life fully so I quit my job in an attempt to pursue a life with purpose.

I started by traveling to get to know myself better. I did a solo trip in Canada for reconnecting with nature, and thus my genuine self. Then I 'helpXed' in California to become aware of my capabilities, and to broaden my horizons. And lately I've actively been involved in alternative initiatives within my own city.

WHY I AM A HELPER

I want to contribute in building a better world. But years of school mainly taugth me rather to use my brain instead of my hands. HelpX here fix the gap by promoting a "learning by doing" approach that connects people's needs with those who are interested in alternative ways to the trading system. I rather prefer to put my energy in serving people that would impact positively our society and possibly our planet.
I wish to share meaningful time, gain new experiences, and give myself a chance to maybe discover my true calling on the way, who knows.. :)

WHAT I CAN DO

I'm eager to learn and have no problem with getting my hands dirty. Any physical work is appreciated.

In a more practical way, I am willing to help you in various fields. I am experienced with
- GARDENING (mowed grass, pruned rose bushes, picked up veggies, pull out plants, built a composter),
- CONSTRUCTION (participated in a series of workshops, build a earth/cob pizza oven, made small wooden tools, repaired a deck, built a wooden wall),
- COOKING (love to cook collectively). In addition I am also good at:
- PHOTOGRAPHY : capturing, sorting out, editing, printing
- WEBSITE MAINTENANCE : I got professional experience from jobs and internships

My current interests are into hospitality (ethic and ecological hostelling), knowledge of wild edible plants and medicinal herbs, spiritual teachings and non-formal education.

WHO I AM (in a few words)

I'm an enthusiastic, curious and open-hearted person. I have a sense of adventure and authenticity that helps guiding my life. Regarding my interests it's wide. I enjoy to discuss, reflect with different ideas and challenge my beliefs. I love to just enjoy the moment, surrounded with good people, listening to people's stories or playing music. I love trekking in wild nature that's probably explains why I did lots of wild camping. Last summer 2018 I accomplish a +3600km bike trip across Europe.
