July of 2019

In May of 2019, we moved from Kansas City, Missouri to Oliver's hometown of Columbia, Missouri to pursue art full-time. In the years before, we owned a roadside assistance business; working on sculptures in between calls to unlock a car door or change a tire.

We met our freshman year at the Kansas City Art Institute. Our friendship grew when we were both hired as technicians at our college's wood shop. 

We began dating our junior year, just two months before Miranda intended to study abroad in Paris. When Miranda left in June, we continued our relationship despite the distance. By December, Oliver followed and proposed during a visit to St. Denis Cathedral in northern Paris. 

We were married just five months later on the day after our graduation, May 18, 2014 surrounded by our family and friends. 

We've spent the last seven years growing and learning together; building our dream life creating beautiful things for the glory of God. 

Our individual "about" pages break down our separate journeys.
