The People Behind

The People Behind

Since I’ve started this website I’ve never said a word about who is behind this website, but today I’ve decided to reveal a few details and pictures with the people behind this website. So let’s begin …

Michael or Micle Mihai-Cristian is a 22 years guy that is also the founder and owner of Freshome. In the begining Freshome was just a place where I wanted to get ideas and be more clear on how my future house or apartment will look like. With time more and more people discovered the website, and I’ve become someway addicted to this website especially when a lot of those people told me that they love the website. Right now I’m living in Timisoara – Romania.

Living in Eastern Europe ( Bucharest – Romania ), Alex has been a journalist/blogger and a business man for more than three years now. When not writing about travel places, gadgets or cars, he’s traveling Europe. Whether it be by subway, tram or bus, Alex is keen to visit every little street, shop or bar he can find.

Specialized in writing about those places of natural beauty or significance, recently he found a great interest in covering amazing architectural designs, furniture or style in general. He’s been with us on Freshome for more than 6 months now, and loves it all the way.

Pearl is a Canadian scientist with a long-standing interest in design. Pearl is also a jewelry artisan, instructor and author of her own jewelry blog, The Beading Gem’s Journal. She enjoys writing about innovative design and appreciates the creative process. She keeps a keen look-out for great designs as well as unusual and novel products to share with readers. Pearl joined Freshome in the summer of 2008.

P.S – Would you like to be a member of the Freshome team ?

    I’ve been spending my time scouring your site to find some
    inspiration to innovate my apartment. I have already improved
    on storage space around my home and next on the list is my son’s
    room and the bathroom. Looking forward to more fresh ideas on
    freshome ;)
