I am a professional computer person who decided not to live in a cubicle. So I travel as much as I can in a quest to find a place to eventually settle down - but not too soon. I'm having way too much fun.
I did some house sitting many years ago, and then recently I signed up on this site. My first sit here on Housecarers went great - three months sitting for two great cats and two acres in Oregon. I had a great time and the home owners and I are glad we found each other. You can find a reference in my profile.
I grew up with animals and I have tended ranches and worked as an apartment super, so I think I'm a good hand to have on-site and I am happy to help with small repairs. I am part city part country. I am responsible and honest, and I promise that you will be happy with the condition of your home (and animals, plants, etc.) when you return.
What I want is to let you enjoy your time away, and for me I want a comfortable place where I can feel at home and that you will come back to without having to clean or fix anything. The important things for me are reliable internet, a place to exercise, and a new experience. Some bicyling would be nice too.
