about

For as long as I can remember, my family has lived in the historic garden district of New Orleans. My grandfather was a successful contractor and a landscape artist. I was bred to love the soulful history of this city. From my father’s love of the Mardi Gras Indians and Zulu club, to my childhood home on Constantinople, to my grandparent’s historic Irish Channel home on Philip Street also the meeting place of a childhood playmate turned husband, we are naturally New Orleans. Our memories include primary school at Mc Donogh 7 on Milan, basketball at Redemptorist gym on Josephine, and Rue de la Course coffee over various medical and business school studies. He is a business graduate of UNO and I am a LSUHSC physician. We never wanted to leave our community but always had a desire to pay forward the riches that it awarded us. I hope you can imagine our excitement when we found a beautiful old creole cottage in that same community. It seemed right to purchase it, renovate it and name it for my late grandfather, “Old LaLa’s Creole Cottage”. We have a great vision for our home and would love to refurbish it to the standards of its namesake. We also would like to incorporate our flavor of southern hospitality that is unique to this community.


We are local couple who grew up in the area and met as children. We were in graduate school during the Hurricane Katrina and engaged. We had a Katrina wedding in another state and returned home in 2006. It has been a great experience to live and grow in New Orleans and we are raising our family here. After traveling various places in the world we have experienced the uniqueness of our own city. We would like to share that experience with you.


This Historic Creole Cottage was built in the 1840s and possesses all the unique charm of old New Orleans.
