Hi. I am just entering what I believe is a new and exciting stage of my life.
Just retired after 21 years as an air traffic controller I am now free of most responsibilities and ready to take advantage of what this opportunity presents.
I have had the good fortune of having many interesting careers in my life in addition to air traffic control (working in different locations and positions including as a supervisor and instructor) I was a Customs officer plus various positions in the coast guard.
I Try to enjoy all that life has to offer, being in the outdoors, gardening, travel and exploring wherever I happen to be.I believe that house sitting offers a certain serendipity. an opportunity to explore and experience new places that one may not even have thought of. To be more than a tourist but maybe get the chance truly find out what a place is really like.
It represents a chance to not only use the skills and knowledge one has collected in their lives but to hopefully add to them.
But most importantly I hope to meet some interesting people and amazing animals.


I guess this is one this is one good thing about getting older, you gain experience:)
Though I am new to house sitting I have had a lifetime of maintaining properties and caring for animals.
I have had cats, dogs, birds (budgies) and fish, both outside and in an aquarium.
I have enjoyed both maintaining and doing upgrades to the homes that I have owned. Plus I am comfortable working on and with various types of equipment and vehicles.
I lived for many years on an acreage in northern British Columbia which required a certain amount of self sufficiency.
I have built and enjoyed several gardens that included water features, greenhouses and both vegetable and ornamental gardens.
I am always looking forward to learning more.

You could not ask for a better house sitter than Mitch. He initiated conversation, set up an in person introduction before our first sit and made us feel at ease leaving our pets and home in his care. He sent reminder texts closer to the date and stayed in touch throughout his stay. He was so lovely to chat with and easy to arrange things with. He left the house spotless and also left us a lovely parting gift of flowers. The cats told us they were well loved while he was here:) This was our second sit by Mitch and I would highly recommend Mitch to anyone.
