About this sitter

I am a 58 year old fit and active ex-professional. My wife and I have lived all over the world. The children are grown up and my wife is still working. I am looking to keep myself busy, but not stay in one place. I quite like the idea of helping people out, whilst seeing another part of the world, but not as a tourist. I speak French and German reasonably well (and some Russian). I have always had dogs and good with them. Other experience with guinea pigs and fish. Less experienced with other pets/animals, but happy to learn.

Why they want to house sit

I have the idea of buying my own place in Europe (France, Portugal etc), but want to explore a bit more. House sitting seems a way to have the opportunity to see other places with a different perspective from the usual tourist.

Their experience

I have not done house sitting before. However, I have 30 years' experience in a high pressure work environment in developed and developing countries; and as a father of 2 kids and various pets. I am computer-savvy and can drive on both sides of the road! I can provide any references required from my professional life, though not yet as a house sitter.

What can they bring to the assignment

I am a practical and easy going guy and have put myself in all sorts of challenging positions over the years and come out the other side still smiling. I would bring my professionalism to the job, whatever you needed me to do. I am as comfortable walking and looking after the dog, as cutting the grass, doing the garden, managing the plumber or presenting to the board of directors! I have lived in some of the great cities of the world, but also had a base in a rural community in the UK for many years. I am very happy in different environments.
