I live in Oakland California with my partner LeighAnna, and my daughter Paloma. With my professional time, I design and produce custom, hand-made bicycle frames under the name Broakland; And in my spare time, I practice fine art photography, creative writing and music. I love to travel and I am always looking for opportunities to take work on the road, especially creatively, through a love of photography, music, literature and bicycles. Naturally.
We live in and rent out our home in the Cleveland Heights neighborhood of Oakland California where my daughter Paloma represents the fifth generation to live in the home! We love to share our space with others while we travel!
With serendipity as a cornerstone, we prefer to travel along loose plans to let the day be the day and the night be the night. We love to experience other cultures, other people, and life as a wondrous series of events, and hope that folks will find this ethos in the very home we love and rent.
