Andrew was born and raised in Westchester, just north of NYC, while Chris grew up in Colorado and moved to the city in 2000. Our paths finally crossed when mutual friends introduced us in 2008, but we didn’t start dating until 2011 — and after just a few weeks (including beautiful summer weather, showings of Harry Potter, and trips to the Met museum), we knew we were going to tie the knot! Surrounded by friends and family, we were married in 2012, and have been enjoying the adventure of life together ever since.
Our friends and family are all amazing role models, and we’ve both been privileged to help raise the little ones around us — and now we’re hoping that we can finally add new little ones to our twosome. We tried to have kids with the help of a surrogate mother for four years without any luck, and so now we’re turning to the wider world to see if we can find the baby who might be waiting for us somewhere else.
We can’t imagine what you might be feeling as you’re reading this, but we hope as you get to know us, you’ll see that we’ll be dedicated to making sure your child has the best opportunities that we can possibly provide, while we help them to develop into unique, amazing people of their own. We would also be more than happy to maintain a relationship with you, and make sure your child knows their own history, and all of the people who love them.
Get in touch, and feel free to ask us anything you like — we’d love to hear from you!
We own a charming two-bedroom apartment in the heart of downtown Brooklyn, and share our space with our three cats: Mocha, Latte, and Earl Grey. Our building is full of other kids and families, and is close to great schools & parks — and of course, the amazing life, culture, and adventure of New York City.
Andrew is an attorney in Manhattan, who has managed to escape the long hours of a big law firm and now works in (as he calls it) “the intersection of law and finance.” Chris works in web & software development, and is currently a director of product development for an internet giant involved with health & wellness. We’re both lucky enough to always get home in time for dinner!
When we’re at home, we’re probably spending time together playing games, watching movies, having fun solving puzzles (jigsaw and otherwise), or having friends and family over for dinner — our apartment is practically famous at Thanksgiving! For the latest baking project, Chris has been making batches of French macarons — good thing there are a lot of eager taste-testers in the office!
We also love to travel — but whether it’s for a drive to get out of the city for a day, visiting family, or a trip to our favorite destination, Disney World (we are experts at Epcot!), as long as we’re somewhere together, we always feel at home.
