  • Description



    My name is Edgardo Ortiz, I am 35 yrs. I came across this platform some months ago when I met some workawayers and I couldn't stop thinking about it since then. I am a very happy and outgoing person. I have an entrepreneur mindset. I have had the urge to travel around the world and to get to know different cultures and I think this is a good place to start because I can’t do it at the time and I having people from different places here can help me travel without traveling for now. My goal is to do workaway myself some time. In the last couple of years I have traveled to Colombia, Peru and some of the US, would love to keep doing it.

    I live with my dog a Standard Poodle called Thiago, he is my partner. He is a very smart and lovable dog. I work in sales so I am busy most of the time, I could use some help in the apartment while im not home and at the same time keep Thiago some company while I am working. If you have a dog, you are welcome to bring it with you if you can.

    Where I live is a walk up apartment complex that is very safe and has some amenities like pools and basketball courts. It called Quinta Real in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico. You can look it up in google maps so that you see what is close to where I live.

    I have some projects in mind that I would like to do but either I dont have the time or the patience to do myself and that is where this comes in handy.

    I am a very clean person, I keep the apartment always clean and neat. I ask you to be clean and keep the place clean too. I am in the process of living a stress free life and I could use the help to not feel like I am leaving my projects behind.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am fully bilingual, I can teach you some Spanish, on weekends I can take you to hangout where the locals hang out. Our Island has a lot of nice places to explore so if you would like to visit one, just let me know so that I can take you to a place you might me interested in.

  • Help


    Four hours a day for five days a week is the max of help that I ask for. This is how the daily schedule looks:

    1 Hour- Cooking (I am in the process of
    eating healthier but I dont have the time to cook)

    30 Min- Take care of Thiago (Brush his hair)

    2Hrs 30Min- Project (Pick one of two projects that I have in standby)

    A. Train Thiago to do all kinds of tricks. (I have been wanting to train my dog because he is a very smart dog but I don’t have the patience to do it).
    B.Unique decor of the apartment. ( I would like to do an out of the ordinary decor on my apartment and having some input from someone different will help).

    I do not ask for it to be done at a specific time, you can do it at the time of the day that you feel better doing it.
