We are a couple and have just got engaged. We have a puppy called Lia (she is very friendly, but can be kept out of the way of guests). I'm a painter and a music producer. We have just opened a shop in Bude, which sells prints, jewellery, canvas prints, gift cards and relaxation CDs. I play the cello and like surfing, walking on the beach, fire pits in the evening, chilling out and meditation. We have called our place Arorangi, which is a maori word and means fringe of the heaven. This is to reflect the beautiful view from our hot tub and also my Kiwi ancestry.
