Quiet, non-smoking, non-drinking, Irish mathematician seeks to see the world a little and perhaps pick up a new language, or at least brush up on those I have a smattering of already.
I will need to be able to access the internet about once a week to receive new work assignments, but if this can be done by cycling to a nearby town or village, then I'm good to go.
I work online (editing math journals for a Berkeley-based company), which provides me wonderful opportunity to see more of the world, and I am trying to make the most of it - in 2018, I traipsed around snowy eastern Canada and the US for a few weeks in January, mostly on trains. Beach holiday in Lanzarote in March to thaw out. Did my first housesit in April in a lovely village in Yorkshire for a couple of weeks. Made a few other visits to various parts of England throughout the year for gigs and to visit friends. A couple of weeks in California in June with work colleagues. Then spent July and August living in a van, travelling through the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland, aside from two stationary weeks spent housesitting a boat in Sweden. Also had a brief overnight visit to Pula in Croatia because it was somehow the cheapest flight from Ireland to Sweden... but it was a lovely city and well worth the slight inconvenience. Remote work is great.
I am currently based in Galway, Ireland, though I sometimes feel like I spend more of my time abroad than at home these days...
Always willing to hop on a plane at short notice to go somewhere interesting.
I have done two housesitting assignments with mindmyhouse - three weeks looking after a lovely home in a beautiful village in Yorkshire, and a fortnight on a houseboat in Sweden.
I also have some airbnb references attesting to the fact that I can spend some time in a house without burning it to the ground, if that is of any use.
Reliability, enthusiasm, a willingness to learn, and a fussless housesit.

Fintan spent two weeks minding our house in New York, and everything went smashingly. Fintan took excellent care with watching the house and garden and keeping in good contact. I wouldn't hesitate to have him come stay at our place again and would highly recommend him for your place if he is consideration to have a stay at yours. Five stars for sure!
I’m very impressed and grateful for Fintan and Nancy who looked after my house boat when I went to Scotland. With unexpected issues arriving with the boat, they handled everything with grace, creative skills and a good attitude. You certainly are welcomed me back any time!
Fintan looked after our house for us while we made a 2-3 week trip to China to our son's wedding. From our initial contact with him communication was simple and relaxed, we used WhatsApp, Facebook - and WeChat while we were in China, maintaining a casual dialogue as we travelled about. We returned to our home in perfect order, he had even replaced our kitchen flowers with fresh ones! Fintan is a quietly charming guy, conscientious and reliable; we would recommend him as a house-sitter without hesitation. :-)
