  • Description

    I'm a fit, 68yr old retired american. vegetarian, long distance runner. retired from the publishing business.
    i have lived and worked outside the US for over 15yrs - most recently spent 3yrs in guadalajara, mx, where i opened a business - a classified ad paper in spanish.

    - Some of my adventures:
    - spent a winter north of the arctic circle, alone on a small island, off the coast of norway.
    - spent two weeks in petropavlosk on the kamchatka peninsula.
    - ran around the island of bali - running 50 miles a day for 10 days straight.
    - twice completed the ironman triathlon in Kona

    university degree in investment finance.
    coached tennis for many years when younger. I could work with your kids, giving them tennis lessons in english. We know how expensive tennis lessons can be. Id gladly give lessons as part of the workaway setup.
    im easy going, nonjudgmental, and a bit on the quiet side I like discussing world politics.
    health is a big part of my life. If possible I like to eat a ~ 90 % plant based diet.

    if it's possible I much prefer having my own private living space no matter how small or funky -
