Enjoy your vacation or your travels knowing your house and pets and most important assets are being well safeguarded by some one with impeccable character and absolute integrity.

Hi- My name is Joe and I'm a fit, active, healthy, fully vaccinated, non-smoking/non-drug taking responsible individual with US, UK, and EU citizenship.

I have spent a lifetime protecting and looking after houses, people, equipment, around the world as  both a former military officer  and silicon valley tech executive.  Now retired, I am using this experience to help and assist people comfortably and confidently leave the keys to their house and pets in my trustworthy hands so they can enjoy their life without fear or worry. 

As a homeowner and renter of several properties for over 40 years I am experienced in all the pleasures, trials and tribulations that pet and homeownership brings. I know from personal experience that having capable and caring sitters makes leaving home and pets a lot easier.

My 40 years as a military officer or tech executive (armored cavalry troop leader, and  VP of global services, quality, supply chain ) has given me extensive global experience to anticipate and solve problems before they happen around the world and in the most intense environments imaginable. I work well under pressure and focus on solving problems and performing my responsibilities from the perspective of what you, the owner, likes and is comfortable with.  With a passionfor service- you can count on great communication and responsiveness.

I have a degree in engineering and a graduate degree in information systems.  I have been fortunate to live throughout the US, Central America, The UK, The EU and served extensive time in the middle East and throughout Asia with great success. I’m comfortable in both urban and rural and remote situations and with all things mechanical, electrical, technical, security, and IT. Should there be a problem, I will ensure it is resolved swiftly, with appropriate quality, and for the long term.   

I've had the privilege to care for family and friend’s pets for several years and all pets (primarily dogs and cats) have quickly become accustomed and comfortable with me.  I understand their diet, exercise and daily routine requirements so that they continue to thrive even in your absence.

I am a full time and financially secure traveler who is there for my clients- not a tourist dashing from site to site. I prefer ‘immersive travel’ which allows me to savor new places, the food, the culture, cuisines, local markets and the local people.

I prefer to stay home in the evenings, cook my own meals, and keep your house and pets secure while reading, movie watching or learning new things on line. I spend the necessary time managing my on-line business and travel writing obligations.

Because I enjoy animals, meeting new people, exploring new places, and being of service, housesitting is a perfect opportunity to live a great life. In short, I am the professional sitter that will let you and your family sleep well and without fear- knowing your home and pets are cared for, loved and protected.
