  About Me
I am a very dedicated and motivated Lifeguard that works at the local Y in Valparaiso, IN. For a little bit of my background, I have been a swimmer and a cross country runner all throughout High School and I am now in college at Ivy Tech Community College. I am a man who has overcome many obstacles and life and has made it, finally, to an independent stage in my life. I am engaged and my fiance's name is Rachel. We love kids and we are currently trying to get our first apartment. We have a dog and his name is Curley and we love him so much. My hobbies are lifting weights, swimming, running, and physical activity of any kind. I love being on the go and I basically live at the gym that I work at. At least that is what I am told. I think I would be a very charismatic baby sitter and I would have a positive impact on the children that I babysit. My fiance' and I are actually trying for children of our own and I couldn't ask for a better opportunity to learn what it is like to watch after little ones. Of course, I watch after little ones for a job and as a Lifeguard, I am a very well trained and child friendly person. You can call my employer to verify that. I am absolutely wonderful with kids, but am looking to gain experience with young children because, hey, I want a be a Daddy too. I have a heart of gold and determination of no other. I am reliable and trustworthy. Honestly, I don't know what could make me a better candidate for this job. I am a male, so it is a little different, but I love kids so I don't think I am any less valuable and more fit for the job then a female babysitter. Besides, I babysit for a job and I love it. I am also CPR and First Aid certified. I can also use an AED.
