My wife Shannon and I both work in the film industry in Hollywood. We love design and architecture probably because we work in such a visual medium. Shannon takes classes is welding and pottery and I like to fiddle with motorcycles and older British cars.
When we purchased Villa 501 we decided to model our house in a clean modern look similar to a "W" hotel but with a Costa Rican feel. We live in a 1920's traditional California Spanish style home and wanted to do something which we hoped would have a "Zen" quality to it.
