We are Jimmy and Joseph in Berkeley, CA. We are a devoted couple who have been together for 13 years. We are both professional musicians with flexible and creative careers and are ready to open our hearts and home to a child. We would love to answer any questions you have about us and our lives, and to hear of your own hopes and dreams for your child.

We met in 2005 when we were both studying music in San Francisco. Joseph conducted the student orchestra in a concert which Jimmy attended and we met at a party afterward.
We’ve been together ever since. We lived in San Francisco together for nearly a decade before moving to Berkeley in 2013.
We are homebodies and value our quiet time as a family. On a free day Joseph can be found reading in a hammock while Jimmy gardens. Joseph will walk the dogs and then play the piano, while Jimmy starts to prepare a home-cooked meal. After dinner everybody snuggles onto the couch to watch a documentary or classic movie.
We love to spend time with our niece, Billie (1) and our nephew Everett (3). Joseph shares his love of music with them by playing songs on the piano and leading sing-alongs. Jimmy loves to lead adventure walks with the kids and the dogs—everyone heads outside to name the plants and trees as we caravan to the neighborhood park.
We are animal lovers and share our home with two cats and two white German Shepherds who love children and will be wonderful playmates to our child. Wilberforce is regal and smart! His brother, Buddy, is goofy and loves his tummy rubbed.
Each of us has always dreamed of being a father. We can’t wait to nurture a child. To us that means supporting a child’s interests and helping to turn them into lifelong passions. We believe in family dinners at the table and that art and music can be gateways to a bright education and creative careers.
