Are getting married
on June 8, 2022 — Santa Barbara, California
Groom & Bride
Andrew can usually be found in one of three places: the rock climbing gym, behind the desk of his computer, or roaming the city in search of the largest and tastiest hamburgers money can buy. He's no stranger to the nerdiest of nerdy hobbies, like games, card magic, rubik's cubing and computer programming. Andrew considers himself an expert cat whisperer, and will stop to greet any furry friend he meets on the street, no matter how late he might be that day. His diverse gaming accomplishments have been documented on digital news sites, in print, and in myriad YouTube videos and Twitch streams. He is passionate about thoughtful, well-designed games: both as a player and a creator; and hopes to one day make a name for himself as a video game designer.
Catherine has at different times in her life been an armchair Disneyland historian, hipster, leukemia researcher, national honour recipient (Sovereign’s medal for volunteers), bouldering climber, basketball star, and community advocate. She enjoys playing hostess at parties and making cocktails, long-distance running, trying to be there for her friends and family, collecting ephemera and records, and going to the movies. Her favourite filmmakers are Richard Linklater, Nora Ephron, and Stephen Spielberg. She values open and honest communication, empathy and kindness, humility, and having a laugh. Her goals for self-improvement right now are to be less materialistic, a better listener, and more patient with those around her.
