  • Descrição

    I am from Philadelphia and run a community boathouse & environmental education programs at a public park in an urban area. Outside of work I am an avid cyclist, writer, performer, small wave surfer, music enthusiast, singer & sea swimmer . I have spent the last year as a live-in home health aide for my father. I am taking a three month sabbatical from April - July 2022 in Ireland. I will be doing an artist residency and taking irish language courses. I am also hoping to set up a few workaways. I am self-sufficient, tolerant, responsible, unfussy, friendly, active, eat just about everything and laugh a lot. -I have a deep interest in learning about Ireland, Irish culture / history / land / music / language / mythology.

    As for my skills, I have had many jobs over the years, so acquired a variety of sills. I am reasonably handy. I have not led up construction or carpentry projects, but I have often assisted. As a performer/artist I have built set pieces, sewed costumes and set up sound systems. I owned a large old home for 16 years and did numerous DIY repairs. I have done plenty of gardening and landscaping. I managed a horse stable for a number of years and worked for a vet, so I have experience caring for/handling/riding horses, as well as cats, dogs, chickens, goats. I also have intermediate computer skills. I'm a slightly above average cook. Despite being incredibly accident prone, I am generally tidy.

    As for what I'd need from a host, I do have occasional problems with sleep, so need a proper bed (I just don't sleep a wink when camping) in a relatively dark room that is cat-free (I'm mildly allergic, I can't share a bedroom with a cat). Having lived in a large city my whole life, I don't however need quiet to sleep. I am still helping with my dad's care remotely & working on a few research projects, so I do need wifi for emails and internet research. I will not have a car with me, so access to a bike would be ideal.
