I live with my new wife and stepson in an apartment with 2 cats and some goldfish. I run technical services and worship technology for a large Presbyterian Church. I like non-dual cosmology and good design.
What I like most about Novica:
I feel good about purchasing from and supporting artists and organizations that participate in fair trade. Cool things to make my princess happy.

Testimonial for Alejandro Chavez
We received our Retablo today. I had ordered the Chapel of Santa Ana for us, and 2 of Our Lady of Fatima for friends who are women Pastors. My friends loved the Fatima Retablo. I thought the one would display it in her office at the church, but she surprised me by wanting to take it home where she would have it with her more personal and meaningful artwork. And we just love the Chapel of Santa Ana. In this advent season we are establishing our first of many seasonal traditions and this retablo serves as our Nativity set. The detailing is just how it is described, Alejandro obviously does take pride in and loves his art. The first two gifts were so well received I may order more. The shipping: I took the quickest level of shipping; ordered late on a Thursday night, received tracking information on Monday that the package had been delivered to the Lima, Peru DHL facility, and received the package here in Ohio on Wednesday morning. As with all Novica orders, everything was wonderfully packaged and gift-wrapped, with charming details like a small fabric and ceramic figurine on the bow - a taste of what lay inside. All that, for a good price, and fair trade too. Alejandro, espero que son capaces de experimentar algo de la alegría que hemos experimentado. Bendiga a usted ya su familia.
Testimonial for Bhavesh
I just received the ring I ordered (Princess) for my girlfriend - now fiance. She loves it! Thanks Bhavesh!
Testimonial for Diah Ayu
My sweetheart discovered the ring style "nature" by Ms. Ayu, and after looking around with local artists and on-line we decided that we really felt the style was right for us. The price is also awesome. We received them faster than expected in cute little padded boxes and really neat thinly shaved wooden 'ribbon with rose bows' wrapping them. We get to put them on for real in a day.
