How We Met
We met at Theology on Tap in Gainesville which ironically we now run together. Will was commuting from Jacksonville and getting to know the Gainesville community where we had mutual friends. We met again at a Cinco de Mayo party where we began talking. We had the chance to hang out and get to know each other casually through our friend group and through playing soccer every week. Will was offered a job in Gainesville and he started spending more time there as he prepared to move.
How They Asked
We love spending time in nature and at breweries. One of our favorite hobbies is biking to one of the breweries in town. We’ve gone on many adventures together both locally and internationally. We like to travel and experience new things together.
