How they met:
Bruce and Alisandra met when she started working for his
employer back in 1993. He was repairing Mac computers and
she was hired to sell them. Alisandra broke her rule of
never going out with a co-employee. One night, a month and a
half after she started, they stayed late at work playing a
brand-new game called Myst. After an evening of arguing and
two bottles of wine, they decided maybe they really did like
each other. Two weeks later, Bruce invited Alisandra to the
Old Vic for a pint or two. They spent most of the night
talking and discovering how much they had in common. Within
a month they were spending all of their time together. Soon
they shared a tiny little apartment (don't tell the
landlord) in Santa Rosa. In June of 1996, they bought a
"fixer-upper" in Santa Rosa - a house that needed some TLC.
After remodeling the kitchen and reovering the original
hardwood floors in the living room, the house has been
transformed into something of which they are very proud.
How they got engaged:
Alisandra won a trip to Puerto Vallarta at a nightclub
(OK, she's pretty lucky about winning trips). Bruce &
Ali had a much-needed vacation at the Club Marival on the
gorgeous beaches of Nuevo Vallarta in May of 1998. On the
last day there, as they walked down the beach, Bruce stopped
and wrote in the sand: Will Ali marry Bruce? She, of course,
wrote back "yes."
