House Sitter Available For Holidays- Geordan Rupp - I'm currently in Todos staying with my mom, Judy Rupp, who's lived in Todos Santos for 8 years and is well known in the community. I'm 35 years old, I currently have no dogs of my own, I like to surf, and I'm able to run an energy pendant business somewhat remotely from the United States. I would like to be able to spend more time in Todos in the future not just for winter but for spring as well. My reputation is very important to me in the sense that I want to make a good impression so that when you return to your house you can relax knowing that your household is in order and clean. I have 7 years of experience as a marble/granite fabricator/installer so I'm pretty handy in the tool department should the occasion arise and I'm accustomed to being very careful in the homes of others. If there is ever a problem I need assistance handling I have plenty of local contacts with people who have built their house from the ground up. One of my specialties is my relationship with animals. I pay a lot of attention to our two dogs here in Todos and take them to run around at the beach quite frequently. I look forward to hearing from you! :) - Geordan Rupp, geordanrupp [ -at- ] gmail.com
