Ten years ago, Mike met Lea at a bar in New York City, and they have been together ever since. Mike is a visual artist, specializing in video and projection mapping. Lea is a designer with a lifelong passion to make everything pretty. While living in Washington DC, they founded the Casa Pino, a textile and design collaboration, using Mike's art and Lea's aesthetic to create unique textiles and beautiful spaces. They are now living in New Mexico, splitting their time between Albuquerque and Carrizozo.
