I am retired from a life of writing, lecturing, working in Shakespeare theatre, and teaching screenwriting. I am travelling now took me to Italy, China, US, and back to Italy. (I like it there.) I started house sitting for friends and learned that there is an entire world of house sitting out there, so I found my way here and listed myself.
I founded and ran a non-profit cultural education program for young people based on live Shakespeare performance in the schools, libraries, and parks. It was more an act of love than a canny career choice. I posted a video of my work with the kids in this profile. That is a good way to get to know me.
I am writing the great novel now and using this time of life to try to bring peace wherever I go. I like where I am as a person these days and know I have much growth ahead of me.
I am very good with animals; dogs like me and cats tolerate me. Plants adore me. After years as a homeowner I am aware of what needs to be done around the house and how to do it. Your place will be in good hands while you are away.
I have been awarded EU citizenship in Italy and my China visa is still good.
