In Berlin now, in Germany for an unknown while. Always looking to meet interesting people. Enjoy traveling alone but enjoy good company as well. Traveling with a bass guitar, so music is a plus!
Have been mostly in Germany for about a year now. Currently looking to find a job here in the energy/environment/sustainability sector or get a masters, but enjoying my time and traveling a bit, improving my german as I go, and meeting more amazing people through the helpx community.
US raised with German Passport. Grew up on 8 hectares with chickens, other animals, and a large garden; experienced in many areas of farmwork and willing and able to work hard doing manual labor. Father is a woodworker and rebuilt our house while I was growing up, so I have basic woodworking, painting, handyman skills (although no professional).
Graduated from Harvard last year with a degree in Earth Science; have tutoring experience in English, math, and science.
Spent the past two years working at a Mexican restaurant with incredible food, first as dishwasher, then server/bartender, and finally as bar manager when I left. Spent plenty of time in the kitchen and have good cooking skills (mostly for veggie but ok meat, I eat everything but prefer veggie). Cooked a tremendous amount for many people for my most recent Helpx in Berlin over a couple months.
Personally, very laid back and low needs. Looking to meet interesting people and experience another side of life. Traveling with a bass guitar and would love to play music with anyone along the way.
