About Me

Personal Bio

G’Day. I’m a 36yo friendly and open minded guy. Most of my adult life has been spent working as a musician yet in the last few years I’ve been seeking a career transition. I’ve spent time working as a music teacher, audiovisual technician, construction labourer, gardener and even last year began studying aviation but haven’t yet quite figured out my path.

Ever since I was young I’ve been an avid environmentalist and general sustainability nut. I would be the guy picking up all the rubbish after playing a game of metro league soccer once everyone had left the place trashed. I’m always mindful of my carbon footprint, power/water usage, recycling and only use my car when I had at the very least 3 things I needed or places to be.

Back in Sorrento, Perth I furnished half my rental house with furniture collected from the verge and one of my favourite pastimes is collecting hard rubbish materials to convert into useable items like cat trees, veggie gardens and for assorted repair work. My personality is partial to quality social connection and I’m always up for an adventure or building project.

In 2018 I spent 6 months helping a friend up in Airlie Beach build his house whilst working on the weekends as a solo musician. You could probably imagine I was always pushing for any opportunity to salvage construction materials and implement sustainable building practices.

Over the years I’ve keenly kept an eye on new renewable technologies and sustainability practices as the dream has always been to one day build my own house, in a rural community and live more of an off-grid lifestyle. Anyway, enough about me, let’s get working on something more sustainable and show the world there is a better way!

I look forward to meeting you, learning some great new skills and hopefully developing a life long friendship.

Why I joined WWOOF

I discovered WWOOF when I was planning a trip to Canada earlier this year. The plan was to travel from West to East but spend some quality time WWOOFing, learn some sustainable permaculture skills with like-minded people. As you can imagine the lockdowns delayed those plans, now almost indefinitely, so the next best thing is to do it in Australia.
