We met through one of our dearest friends. After a whirlwind romance, we knew this was a forever love. We moved together to Asia within a month, and never looked back. We’ve been together since 2012 and we got married two years after meeting. We lived and worked in Asia for a couple years, then moved back to the US and our jobs are now in New York – Alex in public health and humanitarian medical care, and Estelle’s job is protecting nature, especially forests.
We really enjoy traveling together. We have taken trips around the US and the world together. We’re adventuresome and sporty, and love the thrill of trying new things. Whether it’s hiking in Indonesia, biking in New Zealand, kayaking in upstate NY, touring ancient temples in Cambodia, scuba diving in Greece, or soaking up beaches in Brazil, we’re up for fun adventures around the world. It’s a big part of our shared interests and we can hardly wait to introduce a child to new sights and experiences.
We’re also very hospitable. There are often friends and family staying with us in our spare bedroom whenever they pass through New York. We’re never happier than when cooking or grilling a dinner for them!
The other thing that really bonds us together is that we both have spent our professional lives making the world a better place and giving back to communities in need.
