I am a writer/astrologer with extensive housesitting experience and great references from housesits/petsits around the world. I do not smoke or drink and am an extremely quiet resident. I have raised four children; work well with all sorts of animals (having cared for "rescue" animals during some of my housesits); and enjoy gardening, the arts, and quantum physics for the layperson, particularly the emerging field of the physics of consciousness. I am also licensed to marry people (in Hawaii).
I was raised in foreign countries, so I am very comfortable with - and enjoy - diversity.
I previously served as a residential volunteer at a Fish and Wildlife Refuge on Kauai and Midway Atoll and the experience left me with a strong desire to experience more areas of the world as a resident, with a preference for having "nature" close by if possible.
The most common theme in my references is that it looks like I was never there, for it is my intention that you return to a home that looks exactly as you left it. As a homeowner, I am sensitive to privacy and confidentiality issues and pride myself on my excellent track record of being respectful and protective of other people's property, a quality which is also often noted in my references.
I have had pets for most of my life, once looked after a friend's small farm for a few weeks, and come from a family that is passionate about the care and protection of animals, including their rescue.
Many of my references are posted, so please feel free to peruse them. I live by the Golden Rule (treat others as we wish to be treated), therefore I do everything I can to ensure that your home and pets are well cared for in your absence.
Thanks - mahalo nui loa - for considering me for your housesitting or petsitting opportunity.
