Before moving to the Islands in 2005, Dave worked as a software engineer and Anna Maria in public broadcasting. They worked and played hard. What drew them to the life as innkeepers was their love of entertaining, cooking, and sharing fine cooked meals and the fruits of their garden with family and friends.
Both Anna Maria and Dave are certified scuba instructors and enjoy many other outdoor activities including golfing, hiking, gardening and downhill skiing. Anna Maria is a classically trained flutist. Since moving to the Islands, Dave has taken up flying. He puts his hobby to good use year round by flying off island regularly to select the freshest seasonal produce from neighboring farms for our breakfast table.
