I'm a single gay guy living in the middle of the hot spot, the hipster village of Tallinn called Kalamaja, raising a 7 month old dachshund puppy, working full time as marketing and brand director (sometimes also from home office) and operating my private home studio as a restaurant, photo studio and massage therapy salon at the same time. Time to time I also host international guests.
I'm creative, but not chaotic person of a type with a passion of food, cooking and travelling. As a former travel and food journalist, I transformed my knowledge and experiences of food and different cultures into a very private and intimate home restaurant concept to give an unique experience for my guests from Estonia and abroad.
Time to time the apartment transforms into a popup photo studio with 3-4 light heads, backdrops and creativity, mostly crazy and shameless human photo art projects :) And time to time the space transforms into chill, reflective massage therapy studio for clients who wanna go for a short and relaxing journey into their own inner soul and mind.
There are days involving friends, family or just me time.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Here you can learn about shameless and out-of-your-comfort-zone lifestyle, dig into discussions of work-life balance and Estonian culture, while living in the most popular, developing but still nice walky area of Tallinn.
Because of my speedy-busy, unroutine and hedonistic lifestyle, I need some daily cleaning help and maintenance of the apartment/garden, sometimes there is need to take care of the dachshund puppy, do some shoppings and if like to, give a helping hand in my studio projects - the restaurant evenings, photo shoots and therapies. Maximum of your time needed in a week is approximately 20 hours, depending of what hours you really count in as work and where and when you just wanna be involved.
English, some Finnish, Estonian
You will be sleeping on a couch in open space studio area. Apartment has a full shared bathroom with a bath, fully equipped kitchen and a shared cozy garden area. The classical wooden house built in 1897 will be under renovation soon, so the coziness of some areas/garden could be questioned.
