Our Story

We met in 2006. We were both looking for the right person to share our lives with. Luckily, we found each other through online dating. We had an immediate connection and have been together ever since. We were married in 2009 amongst family and friends in Palo Alto, CA. We have a lot in common and enjoy many of the same things, such as; cooking together, BBQ-ing with friends, music concerts, movies, dancing, listening to vinyl, and traveling. We make it a point to try interesting and exciting activities, at least once! Our strength as a couple comes from respect for each other, our shared family values, and the importance we place on friendships, and having fun!

Michael's Story

I've been a Californian my whole life. I was born in Hollywood and moved to the Bay Area in 1985. I went to college at Chico State and majored in Business. I currently work for a company in SF managing a team that sales security services to customers in the Bay Area. I find my job to be challenging and very rewarding. I'm able to work from home most of the time. This gives me great flexibility for spending time with my family and sharing baby duties with Gigi. GIGI ABOUT MICHAEL Michael is a very loving, supportive and understanding person. He is an open communicator and really listens. He's also very funny. Michael has an amazing gift of relating to babies and children. He enjoys playing with them and making them laugh. I know he will make a wonderful, caring, and generous father.

Gigi's Story

I was born and raised in California. I grew up living on the Central Coast, then moved to the Bay Area in 1998. I went to college at San Jose State and graduated in Nursing. I'm a registered nurse and lactation consultant. I enjoy teaching parents how to care for their babies and kids. I have fun getting to know my amazing patients – big and small. I just can’t wait to be a mom to an amazing little person myself. MICHAEL ABOUT GIGI Gigi truly loves children. This love is reflected in her warm and nurturing personality. Whether it is decorating the house at holidays or picking up a small gift for our friends' kids, she is always looking to make children feel welcome. Gigi is sensible and intuitive. She has a great way of staying grounded and calm even when life if hectic. I know she will be a wonderful mother just as she continues to be my wonderful wife.
