Woah, you clicked the Creek logo. Welcome to this little hidden page. We're Byron and Mario. We met at UVA and solidified our friendship by finding cheap tickets to Iceland and then attempting to fight off frostbite for a week. On the left, you can see a non-staged, candid picture of us in Alaska last year (we didn't learn much from the first trip...)
We both spent a few years in the tech industry before deciding there had to be more to life than climbing the corporate ladder. We started talking about ways to make it easier for people to shop local and about a month ago, we started a company called Creek to work on just that. We've spent a combined decade in Charlottesville and we both have great memories of wandering between local shops on the downtown mall on a Friday evening. Though the pandemic has made it harder to physically do that, we hope this website makes it a bit easier to support the Charlottesville community during COVID-19.
We're going to keep making improvements on the website over the next few months and we definitely care what you think. If you have any feedback, suggestions, or even questions about how to stave off frostbite, you can email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
