I live in the historic Esplanade Ridge of New Orleans with my wife and young daughters. We thoroughly enjoy the city and its charm. I am originally from a city just about 3 hours from New Orleans while my wife's family is deeply rooted in New Orleans. This is our home. We enjoy outdoor activities and often spend time cycling and jogging.
