In November 2018, our family was rocked by the devastating Californian wildfires. Reflecting on that period, although incredibly challenging, it was overwhelmingly powerful to see our community come together to support one another. Below we commemorate that experience, not only for our family’s history, but as a formative moment for OSEA as a business….

We evacuated Malibu on Friday and are happy to share that our family is safe and we are together. However, we are very sad to report that we’ve lost our family home in the Woolsey Fire. It was a magical little cottage where our parents were married, we grew up and where OSEA was born, our truest source of inspiration and our anchor. Up until 5 months ago it was also home to the main OSEA office. We are grateful beyond measure that our business is safe.
Our Mom, Jenefer, has always told us that OSEA is taking us on a journey and we are simply meant to follow its path. This hasn’t always made sense but today it makes more sense than ever; we are certain the path is to now help our community.
We have been truly overwhelmed by the love and support we have received from our community this past weekend and awed by the bravery and courage of the firefighters and first responders. We hope that we can pass this support along.
