I'm an arts journalist, broadcaster and film critic with a long career working for the likes of the BBC, The Observer, Channel 4 and the Radio Times. I'm self-employed and I'm looking for quiet places where I can write. It means I can take extra care of people's homes and be good company to pets because I won't leave either unattended for long! I love cats: I've had several of my own, and frequently look after them for neighbours. I'm trustworthy, quiet, tidy, and don't smoke. I've done a lot of charity work, including four years as a voluntary outreach worker for the homeless. I've also worked within local schools supporting children with their reading, as well as helping them with arts and crafts projects both in the classroom and in after-school clubs. I'm DBS checked.
