Rene and Alison
32, Teacher/ tutor
31, Writer/ teacher
Rene and I are creative, quiet introverts who love cats! We lived in Wellington for about eight years, but have recently moved up to Auckland for work.
Rene was born in NZ, but grew up in the US. After finishing high school, he did some film work for non-profits in China, Kenya and Uganda, and then returned to NZ to study film and screenwriting. He's lived in NZ ever since. He now works as a freelance screenwriter, and is a board member of the New Zealand Writers Guild. He also teaches writing - online and in person.
I grew up in Hawke's Bay, and have since lived in Wellington, Auckland and Dunedin. I recently completed my PhD in creative writing, and I've since been working from home as an online teacher (which means I'll be at home during the day to keep your pets company!). I also worked as a house-cleaner while I was studying, and would often house-sit/ cat-sit for the families I worked for, so you can be sure that we'll take good care of your property and your pets!
