About the authors


We are Kate and Joel. You may have heard we’re in the process of adopting our first child. Here’s a little about ourselves:


I am a middle school Drama and Photojournalism teacher. In my spare time I like to act, direct, sing, read, watch movies, seek out celebrity gossip, and spend time with my friends and family. I am very excited about the arrival of our first child, and can’t wait to decorate the nursery!


I co-own my own Web development company in Portland. I write computer code all day (PHP, ASP, HTML, CSS, E.I.E.I.O.) which makes me a full-fledged geek. My main loves in life, aside from my wife (awww) are music, photography, and computers/technology.

I also like long walks on the beach, talking about clouds, and wondering “what’s it all about?”.


We live in beautiful Portland, Oregon, were born in 1977 (a great year in music), love architecture of the early 20th century, and have been together as a couple since the age of 16.

This is the photo we sent to the agency for our paperwork.
