Hi, my name is Michela (41) and my better half is Yiull (50) and we have been together for 12 years. I was born in Italy and grew up in Botswana and South Africa. Yiull, on the other hand, was born in Zimbabwe and moved to South Africa as a teenager, he is of Portuguese and Italian descent. Yiull is an established South African artist whom I manage.
I have a teaching degree (B Prim Ed) with a Masters in History and Speech & Drama. Before managing Yiull I ran a business for 10 years with my brother where we tuned and modified supercars and superbikes. Yiull has a diploma in architecture and has been a professional fine artist for the last 25 years.
With Yiull and I working together in the arts, we are able to work anywhere in the world. Each location would bring inspiration and adventure…. which we love.
We are both very active, health conscious and are non-smokers.
Growing up in Africa, animals have always been a part of our lives. From myself having a father that was considered the unofficial local Vet in Gaborone, we had all sorts of animals in and out the house, from lion cubs to snakes to cute little hamsters and Yiull’s parents having horses, a hawk and even goats.
I can speak fluent Italian and English while Yiull speaks fluent English and can get by with his basic Italian and great hand gestures ; ) We both have European (Italian) passports.
We are both very hands on around the home and garden and will treat your home as our own.
Our preferences for house sitting would be for longer-term sits but not exclusively.
Please have a look at our references of previous house sits.
Michela and Yiull
