Being Digital Nomads

We love to travel and experience new cultures. House and pet sitting has allowed us to that. The fact our work can be done from any location with an Internet connection, keeps us going. As a professional couple, the digital nomad lifestyle can be challenging when balancing work and play. We've gotten better at that balance as times goes on.

Why Us

With us as your housesitters or caretakers, you can expect honesty, reliability, and respect for your property, pets and possessions. Our housesitting experience dates back to 2010.


In 2009, Betsy and I left Southern California and began traveling. Some of that travel was documented on TheNextRoad.com. Our first housesit was in Morganton, N.C., then the Venetian Isles outside New Orleans. More recently we housesat in Bonney Lake, WA, and now Santa Cruz, CA.

From 2009-15, we traveled extensively in Mexico and spent a few months in Guatemala, Ecuador, Argentina and the Netherlands. Shorter stays included Slovenia, Scotland, Germany, and Panama.

Occasionally we would return to the U.S. for family stuff like college graduations. During those times, we rented apartments in Boston, Baltimore, and had a wonderful extended stay in Washington D.C.

Fast-forward to 2018, and we are currently enjoying a three-month housesit in Virginia, which ends March 10. Next up, a long-term caretaking position would be perfect. As always, we will entertain all potential positions including shorter ones in the U.S. and abroad.


Betsy and I have been married 39 years. We have three children, twin daughters and a son. We grew up in Flint, MI, became high school sweethearts, later married and then moved to Northern Michigan for a dozen years. Betsy edited and wrote for a couple of newspapers and I worked for Coca-Cola.

In 1997 we moved to California and started new. Mark transistioned into the technology industry working for a small UNIX-based reseller in Carlsbad reselling backup and recovery, storage systems, and business continuation solutions. Betsy went to work for a book publisher as managing editor. She oversaw the publishing of over 75 hardcover books and managed writers both internally and remote.

A few wonderful years later, our son attended Berkeley, our twin daughters attended Harvard, and all went on to advanced degrees.

In 2015 we came back to the U.S. and settled in Sarasota, FL, to support Betsy's mother. She recently passed and as I write this (January 2019), we are planning our next adventure.
