About this sitter

I am an early thirties writer and researcher, originally from Ireland but living in Edinburgh Scotland for over ten years now. I work at the University of Edinburgh teaching "Poetic Thinking" and working one-to-one with dyslexic students. This summer however I have some time to dedicate to my writing and so am seeking somewhere quiet, preferably by the Atlantic, where I can be in solitude and silence and have long walks and dips in the sea. I love to be in nature, love to garden and take care of plants and would describe myself as a responsible and thoughtful individual. I

Why they want to house sit

I think house sitting is a really great way to travel and to connect with people. I think it makes a lot of sense as it gives both parties an opportunity to trust and to share. I would also love to have some animal companionship as I write and would love to take a dog for walks or to have a wee cat nearby. I have previously traveled via couch surfing and have loved making connections with people - hosting them in my own home and being hosted around the world. I have also house sat for friends and am a very experienced animal carer having volunteered for Pet Fostering services in Scotland for the past couple of years.

Their experience

I have previously house sat for friends of mine, looking after their animals and caring for their homes - tended to gardens and watering indoor plants. I have looked after both cats and dogs previously but would be open to looking after farmyard animals, such as hens, donkys etc.

What can they bring to the assignment

I believe I can bring my enthusiasm for nature along with my real love for animals. I would love to spend this summer immersed in caring for someone's garden, and/or pets, so that I can be grounded and earthed as I fly high in my imagination!
