I am a single Korean-American retired engineer who lives in the Chicago arera.  I love to travel, and every spring I walk Camino de Santiago in Spain (have done 6 years in a row) and spend some time after the walk in Europe before returning home to prepare for another trip in the fall to other destinations, usually Asia.

I have been very active in Help Exchange Network ( and have many references.  I am a very good handyman and some projects can be arranged during my housesit if mutually agreeable.  I can also show you the references (host comments) from my account and HelpX (Help Exchange community web site).
