Hello, My name is Shubham. I am 32 years old. I was born in Chandigarh, India. When I was 5 years old, we moved to Mumbai and stayed there for 10 years after which we moved to Pune. I completed my graduation in Computer Engineering in 2010 from Pune University after which I worked as a Software Developer in startups. I moved to Australia in 2017 .
I am a Permanent Resident and live by myself in Melbourne. At the moment I am considering taking a break from my work and indulge in gaining hands on experience at farms.
I love cooking (you can see my work on Instagram @shubhamskitchen) , meditating (Vipassana Meditation) travelling, trekking, watching movies and have recently started enjoying reading books. I like practicing my guitar too.
I have just completed (Mar-2021) a Permaculture Design Course at Rocklyn Ashram with David Holmgren and now wish to gain hands on / practical skills by working on a farm.
Although I do not have any past experience in farming/gardening, I consider myself a good student and would like to learn and develop the skills now 🙂 As per Myers-Briggs personality test, my personality type is INFJ. (Advocate ).
I am good at following instructions, easy to work with, easy going and always open to learning.
