Our home is a place where people from many countries come and go, so there's always someone new here, with a new story to tell if we only listen. I love to cook, work on handy projects, learn new languages, improve the little musical skills I have, workout and sports, and of course travel. I have always tried to gain weight and be healthy so if you cook too, that would be fantastic! One of my goals for this year is to gain more muscle :) And improve on some musical instruments! We have a few in our house already.
If you speak something besides English as your mother language, that's even better! This is important because I'm very enthusiastic to learn new languages and cultures. My full name is Teddy Joseph so you can just call me TJ for short.
My house is 2 blocks away from the subway station in Brooklyn. We have strong WiFi, a big kitchen, and you can sleep in relative privacy out of the view of others.

You could learn new ways of cooking, languages, photography, gardening, swimming, basic martial arts and basic latin dancing, building, decorating, basic guitar. I used to be an English teacher so I am happy to help with new English speakers. Of course you have all that New York city has to offer right outside your door. I have a gym membership that allows me to bring friends.

I think for initial or short term stays, you can cook and handle the food primarily :) There is also a list of simple housework to do 5 days a week, each day can be done in less than 1 hour for this part. I love trying new things from different countries and I'm not too picky. If I am gone traveling away from the house expect to do more cleaning help but not communal cooking as much, or if we decide on a long term stay then there are other ways to help and be compensated for your efforts as well! Just let me know your background and past experiences and what you can do, for example If you have musical ability please let me know! Also I have some plants that need to be cared for, and maybe help with my young photography business if you have any experience with these kinds of projects.
Be a person that makes the house cleaner not more dirty after using it! Depending on what language you speak, language lessons :D And of course have fun! You should be an organized, warm, and welcoming person, trustworthy and responsible. Also let me know what your dreams and aspirations are, it may be that I can help you with them as well!
If you will cook a meal for the day: For the first week or until I see that you know how to do the short weekly list of housework unsupervised, correctly and on time (one day late is ok), I ask that you pay 60% of new grocery receipts. After you show that you know how to do everything on the weekly list right without reminder, then this changes to 50% of new grocery food receipts. This is for two reasons: 1-Because I already have tons of food in the house waiting for you of which you can eat anything you want when you arrive--breakfast lunch and dinner, and pay nothing for in the beginning 🙂 Reason 2: Is for your personal motivation to learn and improve at your own pace. I came up with this plan because we don't live on a farm growing our food but in one New York City apartment, and I'm not asking you to work the same large amount of hours that you would in a farm setting. There are many grocery food markets a couple minutes walk nearby.
I'm also interested to learn Chinese :)

You will have a cozy bed space that is kept hidden and private behind a bookcase and/or a separate bedroom depending on availability and how long you stay. Separate isolated bedroom not guaranteed.
The subway train is 2 blocks away from the house and Manhattan is a 25-40 minute ride (time depending on destination) away by Subway-- We are in Brooklyn in a very safe and convenient neighborhood. There's a nice little park nearby with tennis and basketball courts and jungle gyms. Also there are 4 nice gyms within walking distance! I like to go kayaking and other things around the city and always welcome fellow adventurers! I have three bikes I let friends borrow and also a yoga mat. Looots of spices for cooking :D Feel at home :)
Also If you have the gusto for it, organize a game night, movie night, or cooking night for everyone in the house.
The hours are very flexible. If I am gone traveling, I will frequently ask for photo documentation of work finished to make sure things are done properly so I hope you are ok with that.
I like to meet in person or at least do a video call first before promising anyone that I will accept them. Also workaway hosts are not able to respond from a phone app, it’s only on computers, so sorry for the late responses :)
