I am a professional opera singer (Scottish Tenor) who is often working in London, and always looking for somewhere affordable to stay. I have a flat in Glasgow to maintain and can't afford London rents, and therefore I end up constantly imposing on friends and colleagues.
Unlike actors, it is rare that we perform more than two or three nights a week, so we have plenty of spare time to give attention to cats or walk dogs.
I am very responsible, a non-smoker, non- drinker and very experienced housesitter. I am an obsessive cleaner, which normally I wouldn't admit to, but in this context, I suspect is a bonus.
You can rest assured your property would be well looked after. I have housesat for many people in London, looking after cats, dogs, chickens, budgies, snakes and fish. The owners have always asked me back to housesit again and they have always been more than happy to give references.
As I work a lot in schools, I am police-checked and have a DBS certificate.
I am often in London so homeowners there, please contact me at short notice as there is every chance I will be able to help.
I am also always looking for the opportunity to revisit Rome and Berlin and would be delighted to hear about housesit opportunities there.
