Christian is a good ole southern boy from the tabacco farms of North Carolina. He grew up spending most of his free time at the beach and really anything that had to do with being outside and getting dirty. Christian has a love of languages. Cooking and food is just another way to express how one is feeling. He truly believes food is the true language of love. Washington is one stop of many on my journey to learning more about the world and the many languages it speaks.

Indira Justine is a California-grown, Seattle-based costumer and burlesque performer, as well as Cafe Nordo's bar manager and resident cocktail sorceress. Her mixological creations for Nordo's menus draw on classic cocktail craft as well as the creativity, novelty, and eccentricity inherent to experimental art and theater. When she isn't either lurking behind the bar or at cozied up at someone else's bar, she may be found playing dress up in thrift stores or eating spicy noodle dishes in bed with her cat, Mr. Edwin Beelzebub Mooneyes.
