We met six years ago at a charity event (Toys for Tots) in San Francisco. The invitation for the event said “jeans are not allowed”, and we were the only people in the room wearing jeans anyway! We fell in love and immediately went on our first date. Three years later, Stafford proposed to Kenny beneath the Northern Lights in Alaska, and we tied the knot at San Francisco City Hall in 2014.
Kenny grew up in New Jersey, and is a Financial Analyst at Apple. He loves to spend his time playing video or board games, reading a good book, or singing in the shower (when no one else is around).
Stafford grew up in Australia and started his career as a software engineer. He spent his early life traveling the world (30 countries!) teaching people to use computer software, including NASA, the Pentagon, the United Nations, and Harvard University. He also spent 3 months volunteering in South Africa teaching English and computer skills to students at an elementary school. In 2012 he wrote a book, and in 2013 he joined the education department at Apple as a Project Manager. He loves to spend his spare time doing yoga, gardening, and knitting. Stafford’s job is extremely flexible and allows him to work from home whenever necessary.
Together, we enjoy going camping, going out for nice dinners, and taking our dogs for long walks.
Stafford is the outgoing partner in the family, and loves to constantly learn new hobbies. Kenny is the calm (but goofy) partner, who prefers to relax and chill out. Together, we balance each other nicely, and we really believe that this balanced family environment will create a nurturing atmosphere for a child.
