CV Headline

Hi there, my name is david Maberry im a 27  I am American/English who grew up in California, USA.    Currently at at the moment I'm out in Ashwell supposedly came out here for grain carting and grain hauling, like what I had done last year in Sleaford for the wheat harvest. The farm owner and her son are all over the place, broken equipment and poor planning I have been sitting around for almost 2 weeks with nothing. I need to get out of here and get to work. I'm a proficient tractor drive and reliable to work long hours. It doesn't seem very hopeful in the coming month that we will get much done. As I am off university for the summer this is not the way I planned to spend my summer. I'm up to leave as soon as I have word.
