Hi there! I'm located in Tucson, AZ and currently am only open to housesits in AZ, UT, CO, NM, CA, WA, OR, and NV.
I've done 11 house-sits through this site (total of 40 weeks), which includes repeat house sits with homeowners I've established relationships with. I have also done house + pet sitting through Rover (I can send a link to my Rover profile upon request). Rover requires all pet sitters to pass a background check (we wouldn't actually communicate/work through Rover, but it's an extra reassurance for homeowners who are interested in having me as a house sitter).
I've done numerous work-exchange trips throughout the US, and within those trips I've done some house-sitting and pet-sitting. I do both free and paid house sits (case-to-case basis).
During my house-sits I've cared for dogs (anxious rescues, purebreds, elderly), cats (indoor, outdoor, feral, special needs), laying hens, rabbits, and reptiles. Since starting house-sitting, I've cared for a total of 16 cats and 9 dogs.
In terms of work-exchange experience, I have helped with: gardening, fencing (wire, electric), harvesting crops, chimney sweeping, house-sitting, pet-sitting, farm animal care, spreading seed, cooking, construction, demolition, landscaping, and organizing.
I live fairly minimally, and I really value a quiet environment, cleanliness, and honesty.
I enjoy writing, creating YouTube content, meditating, and playing/recording music. All these pursuits tend to keep me busy by myself throughout the week.
I've lived on 3 continents (North America, Europe, South America) and I've visited another (Africa).
Non-smoker, no pets.
If you'd like a link to my website to learn more about me, just let me know and I'll be happy to send it over.
