We met online in the beginning of 2007, drawn to each other's profiles for our love of music, art and food. Our first date was for coffee, where we talked about what we both wanted out of life. One of those things was having two kids. We traveled to Italy in March of 2008 where we got engaged in Rome. In September of 2008, we were married in Santa Monica, California, overlooking the ocean joined by our family and friends.
Our daughter Stella was born in 2011. We both love living in sunny Los Angeles where we enjoy the diversity and many cultures of the city. Some of our favorite things to do as a family on the weekends are going to parks, to the beach, museums, visiting friends, going to cultural events, hearing music and eating out. We love to cook and have family and friends over. We love to travel and make sure to have family trips several times a year.
We live in a 2 bedroom townhouse in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles. We have a very large, grassy, shared backyard where we love to barbecue and play. Our community also has playgrounds and parks, with a pool where we go swimming all the time. Our home is centrally located next to a Museum, shopping, restaurants and parks.
We have a very good Elementary school in the neighborhood that we walk our 6 year old daughter to. Holidays are fun around the house, with Halloween and Hanukkah parties and lots of decorations.
Dave is one of the kindest, most genuine persons I have ever known. He is the 'middle' child in his family so he grew up always wanting everyone to have an equal opportunity with a strong belief for fairness for all. He is also one of the silliest dad's you will ever see. He takes time to play dolls with our daughter and is always the one dad that is singled out at any get together or party to 'chase' the kids and play 'monster'. If you are ever in a bind, you can say you are lucky to know Dave because he will always support his family and friends and will do anything to help someone in need. I am lucky to call him my husband and my best friend. Stella is lucky to have the best dad she can ask for. I also want to mention what a great photographer he is. He is entirely self-taught and always taking photos of Stella and our life together. We have many photos of Stella and our life together. We have photos that we will always cherish.
The first thing you need to know about Chara is that she always has a smile on her face and that it is very contagious. She is one of the sweetest, warmest humans I know. She is an only child and was born in Moldova, which was formerly part of the USSR. She immigrated to the U.S. when she was 5 with her Dad, by way of Israel and Paris.
She went to Fashion design school in NY, where she lived and worked before moving to Los Angeles. Besides being an amazing wife, I think she is even a better Momma. She is very warm, patient and caring. Being a clothing designer, she is very creative, which leads to many projects such as making mermaid tails, clothes for dolls and dresses for Stella. She also throws great birthday parties.
