Hello everyone! I am 28 years old, extremely enthusiastic, love the outdoors, enjoy a good challenge and am looking for a scene change to get out of the city and back to my roots!
I am from a farm in Western Queensland. I grew up on a big beef, sheep, and cotton farm. I have been living mostly in Brisbane the past 5 years working in consulting and government.
I have been working as a water resources engineer within Brisbane, majoring in flood response.
Why I joined WWOOF
I joined WWOOF to learn more about Australia while I travel and am out of work, to get out of the city, meet people and learn about regenerative agriculture and aquaculture.
I want to own a farm one day soon too! I am in between jobs, I have been a flood engineer for a number of years but do not align with the lifestyle, do not agree with the implemented solutions and have burnt myself out from working in a city office on jobs that impact rural areas without ever visiting the site.
I miss working with people and miss working on localised problems. I need a change and have always been drawn to agriculture due to my upbringing. WWOOFing for a while suits me.
