Hello! Thank you for reading about our family.
Our relationship is very loving and supportive.
Like so many millennial couples, we met on the internet. Our first date was over coffee in October 2012. We immediately hit it off and have been mostly inseparable ever since. We lived around 10 miles from each other while dating, so we mostly got to see each other in person on the weekends. We got engaged on the Fourth of July in 2014 at one of our favorite parks here in Texas. Less than a year later, we got married in May of 2015. Shortly after marrying, we moved to Chicago for work. Three years later, career opportunities brought us back to Texas. Our relationship is very loving and supportive. We understand each other deeply, which helps us solve conflicts and arrive at solutions and compromises in a loving, peaceful way.
Michael is a brilliant attorney and a great, loyal friend to many.
Meet Michael by Alexandra
Michael is kind, curious, & intelligent.
Michael was raised in the Midwest but is now as Texan as can be. He remains a Chiefs and Royals fan though. He is one of the most intellectually curious people I know and he can spend hours researching any topic that captures his attention. Michael is a brilliant attorney and a great, loyal friend to many. He is thoughtful, kind and incredibly conscientious. He is a passionate career civil servant who does his utmost to help the public. Another benefit of his stable job with he government is that he will be able to be home for dinner regularly with our family. Michael enjoys exercise such as running, strength training, hiking, cycling, & tennis.
She is a physician and one of her greatest joys is getting to work with all kinds of different people and try to make their lives better.
Meet Alexandra by Michael
Alexandra is loving, compassionate, & adventurous.
Alexandra was born in Caracas, Venezuela but grew up in Canada and the US. She has relatives all over the world and she has lived in many different cities, but Texas is now home. Alexandra is the most caring and empathetic person I know. She is a physician and one of her greatest joys is getting to work with all kinds of different people and try to make their lives better. She is an avid reader but also loves to get lost in her favorite TV shows. She considers herself a bit of a foodie, as she loves to both cook and enjoy a nice meal at nearby restaurants. She is fluent in Spanish (her native language) and dabbles in French, (which she learned growing up in Canada).
On one of our many adventures.
Things We Enjoy
We love traveling together.
We love to travel and we have visited several countries in Europe and Latin America like Peru, Spain, Hungary, Germany, Colombia, Mexico, among others. Alexandra in particular has a lot of wanderlust and has taken two solo trips to Asia. Alexandra also loves fashion and is learning how to sew. She also volunteers with a nonprofit agency that teaches English classes to adult ESL students. Michael is interested in public speaking and leadership development and has been an active member and officer in Toastmasters for several years. Both of us are also very involved in our church community, where we have made many lifelong friends.
