Hi there, my wife and I were both born and raised in Santa Cruz. I'm a assistant fleet manager for a construction company and my wife Emily owns a local high end hair salon. When we travel we like to stay in fancy places and have high expectations, we built this studio with the same standards. We love food and wine tasting. In our spare time we both enjoy working on our house, classic cars, motorcycles and our animals. One of our all-time favorite things to do is relax in the sun with a glass of wine and our little dog Lulu.
