  About Us

  1. We are a couple in our 40's with 2 young daughters ages 10 and 7.
  2. Josh is an office manager, but he has an MBA in Media Management and is currently trying to break into film production. Tisha is a homemaker and a pre-med student at UCLA. She hopes to one day be an emergency room physician.
  3. We love to travel, but haven't done much since moving to california and having children. We'd love to take our kids on some adventures and show them the world!

  Personal Message

We have never done a swap yet, but are very eager to try it out and meet people from other cultures. We are a bi-cultural family (Jewish and African-American) and our youngest daughter is enrolled in a Japanese language immersion program at her elementary school, which she's been attending for 3 years. We think that travel and learning about other cultures is an important educational tool for our kids. We are a very easygoing and flexible family and we'd consider it a privilege to experience...
