About Us

I was born in southern California and Andy grew up in Pennsylvania, and we met at work in North Carolina. We were married in the Bahamas in 1999, have lived in Raleigh, Chicago, and Houston, and now live in Melbourne, Australia (long story – well, not really a long story, I took a work assignment here).

We bought the¬†domain name whywework.com in 2000. It was¬†easy to remember, and we both work long hours in challenging jobs so traveling is pretty much…why we work. We changed hosting providers in 2013, and they royally screwed up the transfer so the website was offline for a while. In 2014 someone offered an insane amount of money to buy the domain. While that URL was absolutely perfect, selling it funded a heap of travel. So now we’re AndyAndJennifer.com.
