Our Story

We both grew up in the Midwest and so far, our work has given us the opportunity to live in six U.S. states, and to witness life in 22 countries on four other continents.

 

Along the way we started identifying as modern nomads, and it seemed fitting to organize this collective under the banner of ModNomad Studio as most of our fellow ModNomads have also traveled widely and picked up understanding, wisdom and ideas from around the U.S. and abroad. 

Our intention to fix up this old, neglected cottage in Sausalito led to meeting wonderful artists, crafts people and designers. We've learned so much, including that this place will always be a work-in-progress, an exercise in gratitude and accepting "the beauty in things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete," as Leonard Koren writes in Wabi-Sabi: Further Thoughts

This sweet 1880's shack provided the inspiration for the GoGo Kitchen and the articulation of an aesthetic rooted in salvage design and seeking balance. It now provides sanctuary for thinking beyond the false borders of our too-narrow political discourse, gives space to expand the American imagination of what is possible. 

Let's share this beautiful place and offer safe haven for creativity, inspiration and healing in our distracted and divided nation.

Check out what we've been up to. If what you learn about us moves you, please get in touch. We'd love to hear about your work and to help if we can.

 

Big love,  Jen Nix and Steve Leonard
