  • Description


    Single dad, I am a beekeeper, tending my bees, doing renovations and gardening project on an old home in San Pedro, California. Recently had to hips replaced, so I am looking for occasional help to accomplish various tasks on the property. Looking for a self starter as far as housekeeping and maintaining our space, someone who likes to cook and wake up in the morning and make your bed, basically to set a good example for my nine year old daughter. I am hoping for someone who can help her with math or music skills, who would enjoy being a part of our family during our time , and spending time relaxing together, as well as working together.
    During this terrible time of the worldwide pandemic, I am hoping for someone who is not looking to be out socializing, due to the high risk of bringing it home and endangering my daughter, as well as myself and my 92 year old parents, who live nearby, and we like to visit. I don't want to self quarantine every time someone goes out in the world. I guess I am hoping for an introvert type, not a social butterfly. Being Vaccinated is a priority.
