Hello! I (Eleni) grew up in Seattle, Washington ... summers were spent in Greece with family, where we still travel when able.
My husband and I moved to Durham, NC in 2005 and felt immediately at home within the warm and hospitable community of artists, musicians, and porches. We hope others enjoy the town's offerings and people as much as we have.
Beyond my day job at a non-profit serving international communities, I am a musician, documentarian, and community organizer, including a local version of Meatless Monday, "Triangle Meatless Monday." (We encourage restaurants, schools, and hospitals to include plant-based options among their offerings, and run fun local chef contests.)
I also helped organize the neighborhood in which we live, Cleveland-Holloway, back in 2007, earning the title "Neighborhood Hero" (but it was a community effort and I played a small part alongside other neighbors).
Every year, I open my home to a "Thanksgiving record party" and the Indy, our local alternative weekly, wrote about this here in 2010: (website hidden)(phone number hidden)
I enjoy philosophy, helping others, drumming, biking on our tandem bicycle, listening to big talk, traveling, and baking vegan cupcakes. Always happy to share information about adventures to be found in or near this town.
Rob grew up in Connecticut, and moved to Seattle in his 20s - he is a student of Aikido and will give you an "Aikido back stretch" upon request. Maybe. He's also a guitar builder, musician, and carpenter who completed most of the historic renovations on our historic home.
