Summary

Situated in Melbourne on a Working Holiday Visa (417)

I'm a highly motivated, reliable and well educated.

After finishing my studies, I had a varied experience in the world of catering but since first arrived in Australia in 2019 thanks to my experience on the farms, i have fallen in love about outdoor work.

After a short period of work on two farms in southern Italy I moved to Manchester in 2020 where I worked for a Eco friendly gardening company for 3 years and I took care of gardens maintenance and gardening projects.
