I'm a freelance journalist in Chicagoland looking to write and travel more. I just completed my first housesit for a family in Northbrook, caring for their two pups, an elderly cat and one fish.
I've couch surfed in Puerto Rico and stayed in Austin through Airbnb, and enjoyed both trips all the more because I got to experience living like a local.
As a child, I had a cat, Minky, whom I adored. In third grade I had a baby chameleon until it ate a cricket and made me cry. There was also a brief phase in my childhood when I had baby chicks and baby turtles. Always loved dogs and now making up for never having one of my own by pet sitting.
I don't smoke, am health- and nature-conscious. I'm respectful and considerate of others and my surroundings, would leave a place better than I found it. I'd care for your home and pets as if they were mine. Nonsmoking homes only.
