Catherine and Matthew attended high school together in West Linn, Ore. before diverging in their educational paths — Catherine to Western Oregon University to study Music and Vocal Performance, Matthew to Whitman College to study Political Science. They reconnected through a local community theatre company, Oregon Adventure Theatre, a group of rascals who perform Shakespeare in the forest.
Today, Catherine is studying Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and continues to sing with local recording companies, and Matthew is a talented computer programmer and dreamer. They are avid travelers and world explorers, and enjoy local music and art festivals. Catherine and Matthew were married in July of 2018, and live with their beautiful Maine Coon cat, Miria.
