About us

Ariel and Mats are tri-country parents-podcasters-writers+ who go beyond the smiles of social media and get real with ExtraOrdinary world parents about what makes parenting, imperfectly, joyful and maddening.

We started IP, to give us all the community, we truly need.  A place to be “us” without judgement (or not too much) and a place to re-grow our dreams.

As we move toward a new life, we reshape and get clearer, each day.  We have come to realize that our work is about keeping us all in true purpose and on our path, within the all consuming reality of parenting. This is our direction.

Mats is our sound editor, grounded dad with work still evolving into we don’t know what, yet.  He is the roots that let us grow and semi-silently partners in this IP project.

Ariel is a mom and Conscious Family, Life and Business coach who enjoys young daughter at home, is slowly getting more brave about sharing daily life and world stories from all of you, as she attempts to not get lost in toddler input overload. 

Both Ariel and Mats can’t stop tripping over crap on the floor and getting trapped in other parents assumptions.  Never ending sorting, donating and packing life away is often overwhelming. Yet, sooner than later, our European life will move into Northern California life and new things will grow. 

Let’s have fun and deepen our connection together and to family and friends, amidst whatever life chaos is floating our way. 

We are working to create good and better lives and we are out here, to help you do the same.
