We are an interactive and social family and love helping and mentoring people. I am a Graduate Architect and Builder and my husband is a Builder and teacher. I am currently studying for my masters in Architecture. We love food, music, and keeping healthy. Some of our family is vegan and the others are not however we do not eat meat or fish in the home.
