About Us

Our Story

We met 15 years years ago at a basketball game. Jim was playing on the same team as a mutual friend. Jim is 6'9 and I had never seen anyone that tall in real life! I am pretty sure I stared at him the entire time. After the game, I asked the mutual friend about him and he asked the same friend about me - not knowing the other was interested. We like to give our friend credit for us being married. He should become a matchmaker!!

Our Home

Dana

If there was ever a way to learn how to be a strong person, it is moving to NY alone and auditioning for casting directors. Like the song says 'if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere'.
Dana loves to run 5Ks, organize book clubs and laugh with friends.
Dana's laugh has been known to be heard miles away.
This is a source of pride!
