Here’s a little more about our backgrounds…
Brent is a physician who used to work as “Dr Brent” at Martha Stewart Omnimedia. You might recognize him from his appearances on the Martha Stewart Show. Josh is a writer, who also works in advertising. We’ve been together 13 years, having first met in New York City where we lived full time up until five years ago. That’s when we stumbled across the Beekman Mansion and Farm in Sharon Springs, NY while on an apple picking trip. We purchased it, and the rest is not only history…it’s our future. Check out this slideshow to find out more.
