Christchurch - We will rebuild!

Thanks to everyone for the support and wishes since the devastating Feb.22 Earthquake here in Christchurch, NZ. We were lucky in that the ZNO crew were uninjured, our house is solid and we have been able to quickly setup and get back top work .. many friends and family were'nt so fortunate and our love and support continues to go to them .. Kia Kaha!

Our beautiful city has been torn apart ..


We're getting busy again working on visions to rebuild our city and assisting HITLabNZ with the EarthquakeAR app that will allow us to see that which we have lost but also project forward visions of our city .. stay tuned!
