teamKind Living is a collaboration of the creative husband & wife team of Andy Smallman & Melinda Shaw, along with the artistic talents of Fish Astronaut.

In 2011, Andy & Melinda launched Kind Living while on sabbatical in France with their teenaged daughters. The venture is a blending of human development, design, and remodeling of an internal sort, themes that have permeated their lives. Soon after the launch, Fish joined the team to provide original illustrations for Kind Living’s activities.

Andy and Melinda are best known for founding the Puget Sound Community School, an independent school in Seattle for students in grades 6-12. The school helps students build on their strengths and nurtures their intrinsic motivation.
