I am 64 and am a self-employed copyeditor for a major science publisher and I am healthy, quiet and self-reliant by nature. I am considered by all the people I've rented from as the ideal tenant and I make an ideal housesitter too as I love plants and animals and am respectful and responsible with other people's property, and maintain a quiet and healthy lifestyle. Additionally, I have been an on-site apartment manager twice in my life, so taking care of other people’s property is something that I do well.

I have good references from having housat long term for several others  through Housecarers while in New Mexico, which I will gladly share if you are interested. (I am not freely posting these references because I only want those who I am interested in to contact them as I do not want any of them to feel bothered.) Also I am fairly well educated. I studied literature in my college days and and received a BA. I have lived abroad for the 20 years in Germany working as a translator and copyeditor and later on Salt Spring Island, BC and currently reside in Fairfield Iowa. I am looking for medium to longer-term housesits primarily in  British Coumbia, Oregon, Washington  as am drawn to  nature and the Pacific Northwest in general.

Additionally I play soft acoustic guitar and write songs. You can hear some of them on my site at electraday (ask and I will send the link), which will give you a good idea of my character and simple, quiet lifestyle. Please me with your contact details and info about your situation so that we can further discuss your requirements (telephone or televideo is possible).
