Michelle Lee- Chief Narration Officer
I was born in the most isolated population center on the face of the earth.
My favorite color is rainbow.
I don’t like chocolate but I could eat popcorn everyday.
The only time I run is if someone is chasing me or I’m chasing a little white ball down a soccer field.
I always sing in the shower. But never the right lyrics or the right key.
I taught a Sherpa the Running Man on the Himalayas in Nepal.
I can recite the longest word in the dictionary.
Blue skies and sunshine make me happy.
Creating photographs makes me even happier.
I put my stuffed animals under a tree and took my first photo when I was five.
I have really big feet. My friends think I should be a better surfer.
Wonder Woman is my hero. So is the Dalai Lama.
I’m afraid of snakes, Spam and fake plants.
I love people and I love sharing their stories.
The Narrative Loft is one of my favorite places on the planet.
Heather Cano- Social Media Maven
No matter who you are, or how serious the conversation is, I will always interrupt to point out a dog.
I pulled a fire alarm in first grade because I thought it was a gum ball machine. (I like candy.)
I have an insane Yerba Mate tea addiction.
I wouldn’t be where I am, or who I am, without my siblings.
My sister’s name is Erica, which literally means “heather” in Latin.
There are few things I dislike more than shopping.
My sister, my brother and I were all born in the same room at the same hospital.
I never wear matching socks.
I don’t like most fruits… But I love vegetables.
I believe in the power of aromatherapy.
I truly think the best advice anyone has ever given me is to be kind at every opportunity.
I’m the youngest in my family by six years. I always wished for a bigger family- The Narrative Loft is the house full of people that I’ve always wanted.
Alisa Wilcox- Queen of Kicking Butt
I arrived in Santa Barbara fourteen years ago after throwing a dart at a map.
I have a legit tea addiction.
I run, hike, and swim often, yet never with any semblance of speed.
I was kicked out of ballet class at age 6 because I wouldn't take off my soccer shinguards.
I went to Kindergarten with a Scottish accent, thanks to my Glaswegian mum.
I have scared bears away with pots and pans, yet I run away from angry Chihuahuas.
I have a serious fear of revolving doors. I always get stuck!
I write for a living and always trip over the name Issac. Issaac? Isaac? Isacc?
If you have a weak handshake, I will probably blog about you.
I find value in people, experiences and adversity.
The Narrative Loft inspires me with creative energy, and the best tea selection this side of the Mississippi!
David Reynolds- Aussie Chiropath
I grew up in Sydney, Australia. (If you can’t tell by my accent…)
I’m a proud Aussie.
I gave up Sydney when I fell in love with a New Yorker.
But I traded in those New York City winters for Santa Barbara sunshine.
Now, I love roller skating along the beautiful beaches of Santa Barbara.
Some people know me as David… To others, I am the Master Muffin Maker.
I eat a lot of cabbage.
Before I became a body-worker, I was a teacher.
The combined age of my children is more than 206.
I always find life to be a wondrous and mysterious adventure.
My latest endeavor is martial arts.
We are all travelers in life and The Narrative Loft has become my spaceship.
Mai'a- Director of Barketing
Once I tried to dig a hole to China.
So lucky I ended up in Santa Barbara instead.
My full name is Mai'a Papaya, but my friends usually just sniff my butt or call me Mai'a.
When I was eight weeks old, a man who smelled like cheese tried to sell me for ten dollars.
My name means banana in Hawaiian.
Those who know me know the name fits me well.
I get excited, like really excited!
My dream bubble includes peanut butter Kongs, car rides and finally catching my tail.
If there’s a puddle on the floor, I most certainly am not responsible.
I am The Narrative Loft’s official mascot, greeter and lover of all things 2 feet and lower. (Guard your shoe laces!)
