About Us


Jon and Jess are both Americans who love to travel, dance and eat really good food. Their story is a simple one. Boy meets girl... at university... during a pancake breakfast party. Too bad they weren't ready for anything serious. Jon was just getting into the toughest year of his Master's program, and Jess was about the leave the country to do a year of humanitarian work. Smiles were exchanged, but that was all.

Somehow, they still managed to find each other again two years later and start dating. Eventually, they fell in love, got married, and moved to New York City. 

But the big apple just wasn't big enough, and, in a twist of fate, the two moved to London. Now they juggle busy lives of working, wanderlusting and writing for their blog, Young Rubbish.
