We’re Summer and Nino, a couple and cofounders of our business, Driven Connection, which helps people and businesses grow and thrive.

We decided to begin housesitting full-time because we want the freedom to travel the world and explore new cultures, while also being able to spend quality time with animal friends. We want to be inspired by people, animals, and new places and share our love of life with everyone.

About Nino

I had an interest in animals my whole life as I wanted to be a naturalist growing up. Although that didn’t happen I did take a second job at a pet store just so I could work with animals. I’ve also rehabbed houses and been a landlord. Having owned houses, I know how to care for them, and how meaningful it is to have your house care for well. I’m also an experienced gardener, having built a self-sustaining garden that watered itself when I lived in Cleveland, OH (see picture of garden).

I’ve also traveled extensively throughout Europe, North America, and Central America to learn and experience new cultures. I love to go on long walks with dogs or audiobooks. I’m also a big fan of the beach and thrive in warmer weather, but am repelled by the cold.

About Summer

I grew up as a puppy.  Just kidding!  My family absolutely loved Bernese Mountain dogs, so much so we usually had in the house at any given time growing up.  Oh, their personalities!  When I met Nino, I fell in love with his English Mastiff, Buddy.  I think Nino kept me around because Buddy approved (wink).  I grew up with feline friends too!  When my Shadow (long-haired black cat with green eyes) passed away, I was in college and knew the timing was not right for a new pet and loved on my friend's new kittens instead. It was clear early in life the ‘animal lover’ gene was passed onto me.

When I’m not watching videos of baby animals, I’m obsessing over all things travel.  I just finished my MBA, and it's really nice to have a little free time back to do the things I love.  It has always been my dream to travel the world, learn about different cultures, try local foods, and make new friends.  I've been working for so long in the fast-paced software development loop that I'm enjoying slowing things down a notch and focusing on what's important.  I also enjoy hiking up mountains, snorkeling, playing in the sand, curling up with my favorite book, and watching Star Trek.

Why Us

One big plus of choosing us is that we work from home, so we’ll be there for your animals and plants most of the day. Between the two of us, we’ve cared for nearly every type of animal…even our 81 kg English Mastiff who we had as a puppy until the ripe age of nearly 12. He was a BIG part of our family and will forever be missed - Love you, Buddy!

We really look forward to connecting with you.
