Our Story

In 2016 we moved from our wonderful little place in Silicon Valley to Toronto, Canada. We did not quite know what to expect but we were ready for a new adventure. We knew that Canada has an inclusive culture with friendly people and free healthcare. Oh ya, also that it's pretty cold.

A lot of people were surprised that we were making this move. Silicon Valley is often the destination for most people and rightfully so. Also California, who would want to leave California.
