MEET THE Makers

Matt and Kori met on the soccer pitch in Washington, DC after joining the same co-ed team in 2008. Both native Virginians, they quickly bonded over their shared love of the Old Dominion state and things like DC sports, sketch comedy, and food. (Matt is great at cooking it and Kori is a pro at eating it.)

Married in 2013, they currently live in the Shaw neighborhood of our nation's capital with their long-haired Chihuahua, Oliver Frodo. When they are not hand-making 'Chups out of Union Kitchen or selling the goods at local farmer's markets, you can find them grilling on their patio, exploring historical landmarks, or escaping away to Virginia for some time with family and fresh Blue Ridge mountain air.
