We are a free range couple on the run.

From life. From circumstances. From restraint – financially and norm-based.

We eat out of the trash (dumpster diving).

Living on a budget of $100/week in Manhattan, rent-free

How are we rent-free?

We roam from apartment to apartment in NYC petsitting and making many animal and owner friends, while running a boutique petsitting company, Woof Woof NYC.

We try to live as zero waste as possible, composting and recycling, and advocate for people and animals alike.

We run a work exchange on Workaway and Help X in which we host guests from around the world who can apply to live for free right outside NYC in our Jersey City Bnb in exchange for maintaining the house and welcoming guests.

Sandy co-owns and runs Final Frame, a post production company located in Manhattan that has worked on films, such as Obvious Child and Sleepwalk With Me.

His short film, The Last Ice Merchant, was featured in The New York Times and showed across multiple film festivals.
