Thomson and Shayna first crossed paths on the ocean while enjoying a cruise on a classic wooden schooner with mutual friends off the coast of Tybee Island, GA. Shortly after they were inseparable and started a life of adventure, sharing a deep passion for art, design, and science.
Thomson was born in a small southern Georgia town called Naylor. Growing up on the outskirts of a large tobacco and cotton farm as an only child, he was raised by both his parents and his dog. His father a farmer and mother an artist. Like an animal in the woods, Thomson only had his imagination as a best friend and his dog Buck.
Shortly after graduating from high school he headed straight to The Savannah College of Art and Design. Moving through a variety of majors such as painting and illustration, he finally found his love for sculpture and the physical relationship with materials. He continued his passion of working with his hands and started building and restoring wooden sailboats which led to sailing around the world in places such as Africa, Greece, and across The Atlantic.
Born and raised in Southern California, Shayna spent most of her youth riding horses and taking photographs. Yearning for a change of scenery, Shayna moved to Savannah, Georgia after graduating high school to pursue her love of art and equestrian life at The Savannah College of Art and Design. Opportunity presented itself for her and she was able to shoot for renowned publications during her time in college.
After graduating with a BFA in photography, Shayna returned back home to California and became incredibly interested in health and diet. She learned how to create flavorful dishes while also nourishing her body and her culinary skills and art of cooking have grown since then.

Through their love of biology, science, and adventure, they will create a memorable and safe time where you will stop existing and start living.
