Matt & Rachel - our story begins a few years ago in Virginia when Matt (the IT guy) and Rachel (the video editor) met while working together at an animal non-profit. Rachel had recently enlisted in the military, and in what could be called extremely unfortunate timing, caught Matt's eye. Not the ideal conditions to start a new relationship!
After a brief long distance relationship, Matt squeezed everything he could into the car, gave away the rest, and headed off on a cross country drive to Monterey where Rachel was stationed. We quickly fell in love with the amazing scenery and quaint towns surrounding Monterey... for at least the short term, we declared California our new home. While it's the state where everything is backwards, the cost of living is 3x what it should be, and a $150k home costs a million dollars... the darn place just has so many awesome things going for it.
Matt and Rachel are frugal, fun-loving, vegetarians who recently relocated to Dallas, Texas (we're frugal remember?). Matt’s interests lie in vintage British motorcycles that only sometimes work, an old 944 that rarely runs, and all things nerdy. Rachel’s passions are babywearing, animal rights, sharks, saving the environment, cuttlefish, entrepreneurship, road trips, and finding the best breakfast places in every town she visits.
