I'm retired military with advanced degrees in engineering who has lived around the world and owned and maintained several houses. I am very active mountain biking and skiing, and have hobies in cabinetry, trail building, and traveling. I grew up with a wide array of pets, but really enjoy an active, fit dog who can join me exploring nearby forests. My parents raised show dogs, I raised and trained three dog as pets, plus I helped my daughter raise a guide dog puppy. I have extensive experience caring for and training dogs.
I don't smoke and am too old to party. I am house and pet sitting because I want to experience new neighborhoods and areas to explore what assets they have to offer with eye toward building my own house in the next 2 or 3 years. I've lived in and around the Sierra and Rocky mountains for 27 years, but there's still so much to see and explore.
