Arizona Local

It’s true – we’ve only been based in Arizona for four years, but would you believe us if we say we’re in love?

Transplants from the (great and terrifying) American South, Ben and Chelsea relocated to Arizona when Chelsea was accepted to ASU’s MFA in Fiction Writing program. They have made their home in the Coronado Historic District in downtown Phoenix in a 600 sf casita. They are passionate about local politics, supporting local business, and eating açaí bowls at the farmer’s market every weekend. They have found in Arizona a community with a strong and enduring entrepreneurial spirit, a community that knows how hard a recession can hit, and a community with an unmatched vitality and identity.

We’re here to stay. We’re here to help. We’re here to be inspired.
