Makers meet at MIT

We both started MIT in the Fall of 2008. On September 10th, 2008, Morris first laid eyes on Jessi's curly hair at a Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers meeting.

His pick up line?

"So, you going to that conference?".

Smooth.

Finally get together

In the summer of 2009, after a year of being best friends at MIT, Morris visited Miami for the first time (to do some recon).

After a scavenger hunt around MIT's campus, Morris and Jessi began their relationship together.

And they've been winning ever since.

Spanish Summer

We spent the summer in Spain: Jessica in Barcelona, Morris in Pamplona.

Morris ran with the bulls.

Jessi got a signed soccer jersey after Spain won the 2010 World Cup.

Fun Fact:Our first anniversary was spent in Albufeira in Portugal, where we will spend our Honeymoon.

Hit the snow running

When a Miami girl and a Cali boy move to Boston, they must learn to deal with the snow.

This year, we started a tradition of snowboarding because sometimes, you have to tackle problems head on.

We graduated from MIT!


To celebrate, we did a lot of dancing
Morris helped choreograph the intro section of a flash mob, while Jess was captured in the MIT news leading the mob across Massachusetts Avenue.
We even danced during our US roadtrip!

For The Win!

Always proving she is unstopable, Jessi celebrated her birthday by recruiting (tricking) a bunch of her friends to do a Tough Mudder with her.

Morris recorded most of the event, and made this cool video as a birthday gift.

Brazil

We spent the summer in Brazil. Our apartment was on Visconde De Piraja in Ipanema in Rio de Janeiro. We spent a week in the Amazon, learned to play fute-volley, and celebrated the World Cup with some of the biggest fans in the world!

Also, we bought our first car together! Her name is Tangie, and she loves frolocking in the snow =)

Meet The Family

We started off 2015 in Maine.

When trying to decide which family would fly to which coast, we decided on neutral territory. And so we flew the Miami family and the Los Angeles family to a place with below zero freezing temperature!

They struggled. They were freezing.

But family keeps you cozy.

We loved it so much, we repeated it in Christmas 2017!

Messi Worldwide

Holidays, Weddings, Conferences, Birthdays, Births of new family members meant 2016 was full of travel.

The best travel partners are equal parts adventurous, experimental, trilingual, and can immediately pass out on a plane.

Also, they wear weird shower curtains with maps on them as capes and dresses.

Messi Moves

She makes me move.

I make her move.

She moves way better than me.

But it doesn't matter; I want to be two-stepping next to her for a long time.
