About Us

Founding Story 

I grew up in Silicon Valley, marveling as tech innovation reshaped the physical and cultural landscape. After a 13-year career in high-tech, I entered the equally gritty (and equally rewarding) journey of parenthood. I began meeting families from all over the world who were experiencing cultural and social isolation, and realized they needed more- a service that could deliver a customized guide to living like a local, while respecting and maintaining their lifestyle and culture of origin.​


We're glad you're here, and we're here for you!
