I have been a "manny", as I like to call it, for a little over 6 years now. Why is this bearded man a manny you ask? I worked with adults most of my professional life and kids are just way more fun to be around. I have been nicknamed "The Baby Whisperer" by one family for how I am able to calm babies and also help kids with behavioral issues. It's important as someone taking care of kids to always be a fun and positive influence in their lives. I'm solving problems with games or activities and not with candy and iPads every time. I have worked for families in Los Angeles, Washington DC, and Tampa Florida. I have worked with kids ages 1 to 7. With the most recent family I worked for, I took care of three boys ages newborn, 2, and 4 years old. I have done live-in and live-out. I have my own place in Los Angeles so either works. I have traveled and flown with families to a lot of different places and gone on cruises to Central America and Mexico with them. Most of my job duties have included getting kids ready for school, doing school drop off and pick up/carpool, tutoring, cooking, bedtime, story time, cleaning, house hold chores/light handy work, and helping with events like birthday parties and school events. I would like to find a family to work with out here in Los Angeles because this is where my home is. Having to spend up to 6 months out the year on the other side of the country was getting too hard. I am totally okay with traveling for weeks or a month at a time. References are available upon request. I have worked for high profile families in entertainment and financial industries that would not want their information posted for anyone to see.

I've been described as a modern day Mary Poppins by past employers because I truly enjoy singing, laughing and playing make believe. I naturally gravitated towards babysitting when I was about 13. My first job was sitting for my aunt and uncle during the weekends. Word spread pretty quickly through my St. Louis neighborhood and by that summer, I was sitting for 4 families- age range from infant to 4. After high school graduation, I moved to Los Angeles to attend a conservatory for the arts (The American Musical and Dramatic Academy) I worked part-time at xx and xx (were I was CPR an AED certified) as well as sitting for a family mainly during the summers and evenings (ages 2 & 4). I truly enjoy developing a child's imagination by simply giving them a safe and fun environment to explore. Let's have fun!

I have been working with children in a variety of settings for over 10 years. I have working experience as a nanny with children ages newborn to 3 years, though I also have volunteering experience with children of all ages. I have taken care of multiple children, been responsible for feeding, bathing, putting down to sleep and going on extracurricular activities. I also have experience as a Live In Nanny. I understand that as a hired caregiver, I am the extended arm of the parents and maintain consistency with their parenting style. I am Pediatric First Aid/CPR certified and have taken several courses within my bachelor's degree in regards to child psychology and development. I truly love children and am passionate about their care and education. My motto: "Be kind to children and the world will change."
