Follow Your Heart ~ Chase Your Dreams
Chill, Easy Going, Independent, Professional, Private, Respectful, Contemplative, Funny to Some -- Listener, Worldly Wanderer, One on One Converser, Impromptu Outdoor Long Table Gatherer/Self-Inviter.
A 41 year young, independent filmmaker, I have traveled (solo as an independent filmmaker, documentarian & journalist) to some very interesting places (both urban & remote) for my projects (Northern Africa, Europe, Mexico and more) and have been traveling extensively for the last 10 years for my current travel/lifestyle documentary series.
Quiet, fairly private yet personable (sometimes even funny), I fit in easily to a variety of living conditions and communities. I love people and animals and also find time on my own to wander with my creative nature and find space for my imagination to grow.

FUTHER HOME SIT/STAY INFO:
Writer/Director will Care for your Home, Yard, Pets. I housesit, garden, pet sit and am able to maintain a home both with basic cleaning, repairs and yard maintenance. I am creative, resourceful and 'handy'.
With both heritage homeownership experience & extensive solo travel and international film field production, I am very resourceful and independent with the cultural sensitivity to be able to immerse in the communities I engage with.
I love animals. I grew up in rural Canada on a prairie lake, in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, with many friends who lived on farms. I had many pets ranging from cats, dogs, chinchillas, snakes and helped care for my friends horses and chickens. I have a love for nature and the outdoors and love making time to walk and play through out the day with any pets I sit for. I also run for exercise and would love the company if any pets are up for exploring!
I love unique homes and landscapes. For the first 7 years of my life, we lived year round in a small 2 bedroom lakefront cottage (designed for summer living) until my dad designed and built our family home, a one level bungalow out of cedar in Danish architectural influence. I helped build and maintain our family home, surrounding land, lake front pier and gardens (painting, repairs, upgrades, landscaping) for the next 11 years. My upbringing shaped me to be resourceful, handy, self-sufficient and flexible to many different living conditions. I most recently help my father lay a stone exterior on their home in Canada.
I have spent extensive time traveling in French & Spanish immersive environments (France, Spain, Mexico, Morocco, Tunisia, Lybia) including working with 2 French Organizations (ASO, The Dakar Rally & NPO, the Rallie Tunisie) in Paris, Cannes & Northern Africa for my current documentary series.
