Meet Steph & Jimmy McKnight

We're high-school sweethearts who have always had a little curiosity and a lot of creativity (hello, Chao!). Together we have travelled to several places and countries, but it’s not the number that matters to us; it’s the meaningful experiences that have shaped who we are and what we do. Come along with us!
