I work remotely, meaning I can work from anywhere that I can get an internet connection and a cell phone signal. Mainly I only need to send and receive electronic mail, sometimes with file attachments. I do not need a continuous connection.
Responsible, quiet, clean. I'm also handy and can perform minor repairs of many types. No known pet allergies.
I speak fluent English, functional Spanish, and functional Chinese (Mandarin).
While I prefer warmer, even tropical, climates, I am open to considering any location. I prefer longer term (1-3 months) but will consider shorter. Note that very long-term sits may get into visa problems so we both may have to plan well in advance.
I am a naturally early riser and vegetarian, if either of those things matter. As a rule, I will mostly be traveling without a car or similar transport but can arrange it when necessary. I have not owned a television since 2010 and enjoy solitude.
I have owned my own home in the US for 17 years. (I still own it but now it's rented out.) So I have extensive experience with taking care of a home. I have had dogs, cats, chinchillas, rabbits and an iguana as pets. My daughter also used to ride horses and I have helped extensively with things like mucking stalls, picking hooves, etc.
I am handy, able-bodied, a great cook, tech savvy. I'm quiet, clean and respectful. Tend to keep a small footprint. I can drive manual and automatic transmission cars, motorcycles and trucks, both left- and right-hand drive (if any of the above proves necessary.)
I will regularly send you photos and short videos during my stay so you can get regular updates on your home and loved ones. I'm also very happy to schedule a short video interview via
- Sky pe (live:Jeff.Kontur)
- FaceTime (same as my cell number above)
- WhatsApp video (Jeff Kontur or my cell number above)
- Facebook Messenger video (Jeffrey Kontur)
- Zoom video conferencing
- Or another method of your choosing.
