We live in the West Villiage - a super charming and quiet neighborhood in NYC - home to a farmer's market, great playgrounds, cobblestone streets and a park that winds along the Hudson River. Our building is near amazing schools known for their strong community involvement and wonderful teachers.
We're also very lucky to have our families nearby. Jordan's parents, Erica's mom, sister and brother-in-law, and our aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces & nephew all live in and around the city. Erica's dad lives in Florida, but has a kiddie pool waiting to be played in. In fact, this will be the first grandchild for all of our parents, and everyone is over-the-moon excited.

We have a large circle of friends in the city, many of whom have children. It's a diverse, extended community that will offer life-long support, playdates, friendships and fun. We have family members who've been adopted and friends who've adopted children. In short: they say it takes a village, and we're thankful to have such an awesome one in which any child will be welcomed and loved by all.

As for us, we love to travel (our first dates were in the mountains of upstate New York and on a lobster boat in Maine), dance, hike and explore the outdoors, chill on the beach, swim, watch movies, see live music, and cook together.
We also love planning large projects - everything from dinner parties with friends, to family holiday feasts, to Erica's film shoots, to our own wedding... and there is no better nor bigger project than planning a family together... we're loving it already. Even now, we enjoy talking about everything from day-to-day caretaking, schools and doctor's visits to slumber parties and music lessons!
We make a great team, in work and play, and look forward to bringing that joy to parenting. Oh, and last but not least, there's the cats. We've got two awesome furballs named Mingu (after the jazz musician Charles Mingus) and Ponyo (named after a Japanese animated movie character). They're world-class snugglers.

I was born and raised in NYC, and discovered a passion for traveling as a teenager. After college, I found my way to living in places as far flung as France, Uganda, India, San Francisco, Maine, New Orleans, and Toronto. I eventually returned to New York for law school, and moved to Brooklyn soon after. I now work as an attorney in a small law firm with two friends, representing artists and small businesses.
I’m an only child, though my mother is an identical twin, and I grew up and remain close with my older cousin (technically my genetic half-brother) and his family. I love music – playing piano, seeing concerts, and going out dancing. I love getting outdoors, whether to beach, the mountains, or simply discovering hidden corners of the city. Cooking for family and friends is one of my favorite things to do. It relaxes, nourishes, and inspires me. As for children . . . I dream of being a father and getting to share my love and experience with a child, to serve as a guide throughout her or his life.
I grew up in a small town in Massachusetts playing in the grass & the snow, and falling in love with the ocean & the theatre. I moved to NYC at 17 to study acting, and have lived here more or less ever since (apart from some time in Santa Fe, South Korea, and Sweden). I still act (in theatre, film & TV), but also make films and theatre, and teach acting at a few universities. I feel lucky to have discovered a passion at such a young age, and to now be able to do work I love. (I just made my first feature film that will be out soon, it feels super exciting.)
I've also known since I was a teenager that I would not be able to conceive a child, and have long known I would adopt... and am so greatly moved to be in this process now. For while I have work I deeply enjoy, I have always wanted to be a mom. I genuinely love children, and have always found an ease in connecting with them. I just can't wait to bring that connection, caring, and love to parenting… and to really nurture a child to grow and flourish to their fullest.
