    Hello, I'm a busy professional in Bend, Oregon. Between owning/operating a business, being a caretaker for my mom and trying to unwind a bit on my time off, I have neglected some house projects.

    I'm working on cultivating a relaxed and peaceful vibe in my new home. I'm hoping to meet work aways who doesn't mind helping me with construction, landscaping, cooking, and light housework in exchange for a place to stay and food. I don't necessarily need to work with someone super experienced. I can teach anyone how to help me with these projects mostly I just needing an extra hand. I would enjoy spending time with someone from another culture or who has a unique perspective or set of skills to share... after all that is what the work away experience is all about. Please let me know if you have an interest.

    I enjoy the outdoors, exercising, stimulating conversation, reading and good food. While I haven't done much of it lately, travel is also important to me. I'm an avid runner, mountain biker and in the winters I like to get out on my splitboard in the backcountry areas around Bend. I spend most of my weekend time outdoors when not doing projects. I also enjoy eating healthy.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    While not super culturally diverse, Bend is an outdoors paradise. I'm happy to share any of my experiences with visitors. I have lived in Many different environments around the US and internationally, so I am very accepting of different cultures. I am an academic and enjoy intellectual conversations and playing chess. I enjoy the outdoors a lot and am willing to show my guest around the various hiking/biking/backcountry skiing spots that I know of. I also enjoy beach volleyball and have a regular crew I play with.

  • Alojamiento


    I own a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom home in Bend, Oregon in a nice neighborhood on Awbrey Butte.

    You would have a fully furnished bedroom and separate bathroom. The home is entirely furnished although not all the furniture is out because I am remodeling. All cooking/eating utensils are available for use. There is a deck out back with fire-pit and grille. Dishwasher/washer/dryer and stove/microwave are all here. It's a great spot.

    I do have 2 indoor only cats that I live with so being cat friendly and aware that they are not to go outside is very important. This also means while I love animals dearly, I am unwilling to host any other pets in the home.

    I'm willing to buy groceries and accommodate living situation for someone willing to help finish a remodel/painting project.

    House Rules -
    Cleanliness at all times is expected from house guests - no dishes left in sink or messes left around and such.
    Considerate of working schedule - I work 5 days a week, so being considerate of sleep schedule is important.
    Considerate of Pets - 2 cats must not be let out through door or windows left open.

    I enjoy social interactions with guests, but everyone needs down time as well so someone that understands a good balance of those things would be great as well.
