  • Profile description
  • Hi! We are Nick (22) and Ryan (21) from Rochester, New York. We are new to Hippohelp and are excited to learn about new cultures while traveling. Here’s some background on us:

    We grew up in the same town, and played sports together our whole lives (hockey, soccer, and golf) and love to go on adventures with friends. I (Ryan) recently received my bachelors degree in Business Administration from The State University of New York at Geneseo. We both recently have taken up playing music together and we really enjoy everything to do with music and sports. Some of our recent trips included going to Vermont to hike and then to Maine to surf. Both our families have pets at home, Nick has 2 dogs (Pepper and Ruby) and a cat named Buddy and I have a new rescue dog from Mexico named Paco. We both love animals! We are also both experienced lawn care workers. We are very laid back and can easily adapt to any schedule. Nick is an excellent artist and painter and would love to share his creativity.
