I am a native of San Francisco and married to the like. I design home textiles and my husband Mark is an Industrial Designer who also teaches ID grad school. We moved to Brisbane because it is a village like atmosphere and a great place for our kids while still being next to the city. We have 2 girls who are fiercely creative types, wear pants over dresses and have beautiful manners. We travel in our summers to work and play. We rent our house out when we are traveling. We own a store in Brisbane where we sell our wholesale line of home furnishings. We are too old to be hip but pride ourselves on not wearing mother jeans.
