[Sit & Stay] Mature, capable, communicative sitter
50, Commercial and Travel Photographer
If anyone was tailor-made to live the nomadic lifestyle of a home sitter, a professional photographer with a military upbringing has to be in the top ten.
I am a dedicated small business owner (most recently Sit & Stay) and commercial / editorial photographer based in Los Angeles. Because I'm not location dependent, I have the flexibility to work from anywhere provided there is reliable high speed internet access. I sit both domestically & internationally, have dozens of references on major platforms, and mostly work with repeat happy Homeowners and their fur families.
I offer common sense, patience, responsibility, attention to detail, a sense of humor, the need for silliness, maturity, adventure, affinity towards tools, respect for your home, and good company for your fur family.
And, in addition to the 'furry and fishy people' I've met and cared for via House Sitters, over the years I've been companion, chef, playmate, sofa, and custodian to six loving and occasionally rambunctious dogs.
I'm also a non-smoker, thrifty, responsible, pragmatic, independent, and a tad bossy (according to my siblings).
As for the home-sit, a few things to consider:
*Sits (max. 2 pets) include basic homecare. Additional pets or 4-leggeds, extensive gardening, and travel beyond 50 miles from either Los Angeles or Austin prompt a fee.
*I'll need to know, in advance, about any special needs so I can give your pets the care they need and deserve.
*I do not accept sits in isolated, 420 friendly (I'm allergic to smoke), or home-steading locales.
*I am not available for home-shares, vacation rental management, or real estate tasks.
*All Covid19 restrictions must be agreed and adhered to. Currently, I can only sit for homes where all are vaccinated.
*Pet (dog, cat, fish, guinea pig) companionship and caretaking
*Interior home care including light housework and mail collection
*Exterior home care including daily security sweeps, garbage/recycling set out, basic pool care
