Hello! We are Jonathan and Erin. Words cannot express how honored we are that you have taken the time to read about us. As you move through this journey, please know we are sending you warm thoughts and the utmost respect for your process.
Our story is 20 years long. We fell in love young and have had the privilege of so many incredible experiences. Both proud of our achievements, we are excited to expand our family through open adoption.
“What is meant for me, will never miss me.” This is my inspiration. I’m a woman with a desire to enjoy life’s journey. My unique gift is the ability to make people feel good.
I grew up in Sonoma County and am the oldest of 4 children (only girl). I’ve always had an outgoing spirit. As a child, my passions included dance and theater, and I still love both! My professional background is in marketing and I’ve worked in fashion, real estate and for the nonprofit, Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Jonathan, our frenchie, family and my girlfriends are the most important things in my life. I enjoy travel, sharing delicious meals, hiking, healthy living podcasts, and watching the sunset. I’m obsessed with flowers, green juice and anything chocolate.
Gratitude, service and self-care are also very important to me.
I dream of parenting for so many reasons, but most of all, to share and foster the beautiful potential we all have inside of us.
I’m a compassionate, hardworking financial professional who loves to write, cook, sing and laugh. Some might describe me as sporty: I swim, scuba, golf, ski and do plenty of hiking with Erin and Beaumont.
You can find me watching 49ers football with my childhood friends and Warriors basketball on the regular. Many people would be surprised to hear that I used to front a hard rock band. I also speak conversational Spanish.
I grew up an only child in a supportive household. My parents are teachers. Education, opportunity, and inclusion were all cornerstones of my upbringing.
My passions also include giving back. We started a nonprofit six years ago called 100MARIN. I mentor Bay Area young men through the YMUW organization as well.
What drives me is being a loving husband and family member; a trusted friend and professional; and someone that people can always call upon when they are in need.
My ultimate goal is to be a really great dad.
Some say I’m spoiled, but my paw-rents just call it love!
My days start with freshmade food by my mama, then we head to the park, mountain or bay. I always get a few dog treats afterwards for a “good walkie”. Long naptime snuggles with my blanket and then it’s toy time and dinner.
Weekends are my favorite because we usually do Beau, Beach & Brunch. Everyone stops to pet me and the kids give me hugs.
I can’t wait to be a big brother!
We currently reside in beautiful Northern California. Our home has sweet vintage touches and is across the street from a walking path along the water. The neighborhood is minutes from Mount Tamalpais, an idyllic downtown and just over the bridges from San Francisco and Berkeley. We have award-winning schools, wonderful parks, farmers markets, boutique shopping, amazing restaurants, and the community is very family oriented.
It is a blessing to have the majority of our immediate family close in proximity… Parents, siblings and extended cousins! We also have a fabulous group of friends with children ranging from newborn to high school. Everyone is supportive of our choice to grow our family through open adoption.
While there is so much more to share, for now we’d like you to know that your child will be cherished and so will you. We believe people thrive best when they are seen and heard. Our intention is to celebrate the background of your child’s heritage, encourage them to find their passions and be brave in living their best life.
