We love traveling, craft beer, spending time with family, gardening, and Iowa Hawkeye football.
When we travel, we embrace being "tourists" and seek out quirky, off-the-beaten path restaurants, shops, hikes, and museums. We are frequent Airbnb guests and have met great people all over the world. We even spent 3 nights of our honeymoon sleeping in a yurt in the Spanish countryside!
We are both lawyers and enjoy living/working in downtown Indianapolis.
