The architect husband: Born in Chicago, Chris is an architect with a passion for eco-friendly design and more than twenty years of professional experience. He has designed homes and buildings for individuals and companies in North America, Africa, and Asia. But his wife says that Peacock Pavilions are his greatest achievement to date. Chris is fascinated by Moroccan architecture and can share insights on what to see and what to skip during your stay in Marrakech. With over seven years living in Morocco, he has a good knowledge of the country as a whole, and can propose recommendations for your overall itinerary.
The stylish wife: Maryam is a freelance photographer, travel and lifestyle writer, often reporting on food, shopping, spas, and other fun experiences in Marrakech (a tough job, but someone needs to do it). She is also the author of the award winning blog, My Marrakesh. She is currently doing a coffee table book - part memoir and part Moroccan interior design treatise - for a major US publisher . When not depleting the family bank account, she is trying to save the world as an international human rights and democracy specialist. Maryam can provide you with suggestions on fun stuff to do in the city. She loves sharing her enthusiasm for Marrakech with anyone who will listen.
The sweet rascals: Tristan and Skylar are extraordinarily well-behaved children (lies, all lies... says their mother). Their specialty is uncovering the wonders of Peacock Pavilion’s olive grove. They also can give you the straight scoop on child-friendly spots in Marrakech — because sometimes the grown ups just don’t understand. Tristan and Skylar are crossing their fingers that you have children because they love having new playmates.
We hope you come visit soon. And please bring chocolates.
