Dual citizen (USA, Australia) Super handy fixing almost anything. Done a bunch of RV'ing thought the USA installing and fixing SOLAR, plumbing, 12V and 110V systems, refinishing wood .. lots of handy sills. Fit (workout everyday). Some video editing skills. Sailed as a teenager (some solo) in the Indian Ocean on a 16' Cat. Demasted and capsized but was able to push boat to shore with tide. But no sailing since - want to sail again!
