  • Profile description
  • Hello! My name is Dee. I am from NYC by way of Los Angeles. I just graduated from Columbia University with my Master in Architecture, and have been working as a freelance designer since.

    I am ready to step away from the studio and the hectic city life, get some fresh air, reconnect with nature, and lend a helping hand while sharing and learning from others. I bring with me a wide array of skills and experience, from building and woodworking, art, computers/tech, online business development, language, caretaking (animals and children), gardening and farming, and working with people. I enjoy cooking, being outdoors, being active, and experiencing new ways of life. Last year I spent a month on an organic farm in Hawaii and it was an amazing experience and opened my eyes to this interesting way to see and learn new things.

    I am currently looking for a place to spend the winter. I am open to most types of work and would like to spend 3 to 4 months somewhere this winter (2019-2020)
