I had the pleasure of interviewing Kimberly and Patrick for a Valentine’s Day feature, celebrating love in Berkeley. 11stories is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I have proudly called Berkeley my home for nearly twenty years. Over the past few years, Berkeleyside has emerged as an important news outlet for the Berkeley community, covering everything from politics to the local food scene to the people who make Berkeley unique. I was thrilled to work with them to celebrate the love story of Kimberly & Patrick, two of the people who make Berkeley such a special place.

Kimberly & Patrick Dooley are theater directors at two prestigious companies, she at Berkeley Playhouse and he at Shotgun Players. They have a busy work life, complemented by an even busier home life, raising their three beautiful daughters. What holds it all together is their unquestionable love and commitment to each other. (and the fact that they still love to kiss after all these years!)

They will celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary this spring.
