Hi, we’re Brian and Lisa. We know that life often doesn’t work out how you planned but those zigs & zags are also opportunities and we wouldn’t be who we are without them.

What's important to us

To us, what’s most important is to find a place where you're surrounded by the love and support of family and friends. We will do our best to raise your child to be emotionally resilient, open minded, hard working, courageous and compassionate. Know they will be loved for who they are, prepared for the challenges of life and allowed to find their own path.

We've been preparing for parenthood for quite a while now

Not only have we learned to work through our problems that we experience on a daily basis as adults, we have been building real life skills to help us raise a child. Lisa has spent 10 years working with and teaching children in New York City schools. Brian has been a Big Brother for 5 years through the Big Brother’s Big Sisters program. And since he's a software developer who loves to teach, your child will be building technical life skills starting very early.

Let us give you a picture where you're child will grow up

We've specifically chosen to live in a safe, diverse, walkable town in New Jersey that is be a wonderful place for a child to grow up. In our town they will be surrounded by people of color and of different ethnicities and backgrounds.  Not only will have a porch and a back yard but they will also be able walk to school and walk 10 minutes to a big downtown when they are older. We are also very close to New York City and split our work time between there and working at home. They will be exposed to all the city has to offer as well as our love for nature.  They will get a lot of exposure to the wilds of the Northeast as well as National Parks around the country.
