We are Jamie and Vance Kite, in no particular order. We have a small family in a big house in Durham, North Carolina. Our home has become a haven to us and strangers alike; we've opened it up to guests from around the world with Airbnb, hosting academics and authors, proud Duke parents, and technical travelers visiting RTP on business.

Jamie is an engineer at GitHub. She is bold, precise, creative, analytical, and wears denim year-round. She takes hospitality very seriously.

Vance is a public high school teacher and new dad who takes great pride in building things from raw materials, be it course curriculum or a project made of reclaimed wood and industrial pipe. He is active, humble, open, and has a servant's heart.

We've started this blog to keep family and friends up-to-date on our everyday adventures.
