Who we are

John and Olivia live in Burlingame with their four girls Adriana, Pia, Isabella and Bella.

John moved from Denmark to the Bay Area in 1996 working for a Danish company. Olivia arrived almost a decade earlier from South Africa after a short layover in Hawaii. They have lived together in since 2009 and enjoy a cozy yet very lively household.


Hello my name is Isabella Antarctica Agger-Pilon and I am 10 years old. I have 3 awesome stepsisters, Adriana (4), Pia (10), and Bella (14). When I was 6, my wonderful mom died of breast cancer so now I have a beautiful, caring stepmom too. My dad however is my real, loving dad.

I love to do soccer, horseback riding, volleyball, contortion, gymnastics, track, swimming, and dancing. I also love to read, ride my bike, and play. I also love animals and helping my local animal shelter. I am always trying to donate as much as I can.

Have you traveled anywhere?
I’ve been to Disneyland, Hawaii, Pismo Beach and on a cruise throughout Europe (but I don’t really remember the cruise)


I moved to California is 1996 after finishing my Bachelor of Computer Science in Copenhagen. Partly a career move and partly to get a pilots license. I got my certificate a couple of years later and still hold a valid single engine license.

I am a passionate photographer and is a Certified Photographer with Professional Photographers of America. I am lucky enough to have my own studio but I certainly also enjoy shooting wildlife. With a camera that is.

I love to travel and very much believe in Mark Twain’s quote on our home page: “Travel is lethal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”

Most of all I love the five women in my life!
