I live with my wife Marvi in Emerald, in the main part of house-upper level, and are a peaceful & friendly couple. We are generally around doing some gardening during our spare time or doing small projects around the property. We made up the lower level as a private apartment below us for total relaxation, and chilling out and enjoyment of nature & music. We also refurbished the workers cabin in the property as studio for artists inspiration & those on a budget!
