  • Description


    I am a airport rescue firefighter, Builder(carpenter) and am also a Trustee of a dog rescue charity in Hawke`s Bay.
    I am also a founding member of a NZ native tree restoration group. Its early days however, Its turning in a huge project.

    I am a easy going guy with a great sense of humour and very friendly. I have lots of interests including hiking, camping, fishing on my boat, world travel and good conversation.

    I am very open, honest and respectful of all cultures and life choices. I also love to travel and go overseas every year. I have been to USA, Rarotonga, Easter island, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Germany, France, Netherlands, Austria, and Italy.

    I do have a very sensitive side to me, I will listen to your views and if you like we can discuss everything and anything over a bowl of hokey pokey ice cream. This is who I am. I also have a ambitious business side. I work hard so i can play hard.

    I am always joking and kidding around so it helps if you are a little crazy however if your shy It's ok, I can do all of the talking :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In exchange for your help you will stay in a safe, comfortable and warm home.

    I know lots of cheap or free fun activities that we can do together or on your own. You will have the opportunity to interact with my friends and discover some of the "hidden gems" of Hawkes Bay that you can only do here.

    You will expect to work around 4 hours per day. Instructions are always very clear so you will know what to do.
    You even get a instruction guide.

    The Dogs need to be walked in the park every day and you will need to feed them some mornings and nights depending on my work shift.

    At least 2 mornings per week you will need be up at 7am to tend to the dogs while I am on my morning shift.
    You will also make sure the dogs always have water as it gets very hot here. You will also help with painting, gardening, building and general house cleaning
