Mariko has been married for 28 years to master carpenter "Bob the Builder", who she brags "really can fix anything". She home-schooled three kids K-12 and is now mother-in-law to two more, with one incredibly adorable grandson. They all live on a suburban farm in four little houses- two for her married kids and one for her parents, sharing a 500+sq. ft. organic produce garden, chickens, bees, and the love of family.
Her day jobs are running her etsy shop, Bee Curious Designs, stylist & photographer for her daughters thriving business, and afternoon nanny. In her spare time she's a musician, blogger, hiker, seamstress, and award-winning textile artist.
