Hi. Welcome to Studio 286! It's such a pleasure to welcome guests to Kingston and our beautiful area.
I am originally from New Zealand and my wife Rebecca is from Scotland. We have been living in the States for the past 14 years. I'm an opera singer and have sung at opera houses and concert halls around the world. My time at the Sydney Opera House was my favorite! I love music,, nature, being with my family, and writing. Bex is an actress, story teller and interior designer- she weaves her magic putting all the right elements together to create a beautiful and welcoming experience for guets.
I'm a festival organizer and opera producer- a sort of self styled "operapreneur". I started the Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice a few years back and I now run the Kingston Festival of the Arts and Opera Theater of Kingston in my newly adopted favorite city- Kingston, NY.
We have two young kids- Edrick and Rosa. Edrick is 6 and a wild nature boy. Rosa is 11 and is an amazing pop singer, fashionista and artiste. We moved from the heart of the countryside in Phoenicia to the "big city" of Kingston a year ago ago and loving it!
Kingston has a perfect balance of city life, beautiful architecture and nature. Kingston is a hidden gem only being recently "discovered" and re imagined by creative people who love its innate beauty, history and energy.
We created two lovely vacation rental spaces in Phoenicia and have been enjoying hosting for the past five years- I was recently awarded "Superhost" status on airbnb.
Bex and I wish you a wonderful stay at Studio 286!
