Andrea & Anthony Vizzari are the co-founders of A&A Studios Inc., a multi-faceted creative studio capturing the golden age of the photobooth. As the "Photobooth Architects", Andrea & Anthony provide custom digital design and analog restoration of photobooths.
In our conversation, we discuss how Andrea & Anthony found their way to Riverside, how their backgrounds in architecture, photography, and design and Andrea's love of photobooths lead to starting their business, and how they've fallen in love with Riverside's small town charm while enjoying easy access to the city for their business needs.
I hope you enjoy getting to know our neighbors Andrea & Anthony Vizzari.
I still remember meeting up with old friends for our annual Turkey Bowl football game every Thanksgiving. This year, you can pass on that tradition to your kids and support a great local cause at the same time.
The Cameron Can Thanksgiving Day Turkey Bowl with be held this Thursday morning, November 22nd, starting at 9 am at Big Ball Park right off Longcommon Rd. There's a flag football game for 6-8 year olds and another one for ages 9+. Coffee, hot chocolate, and donuts will be provided.
The Cameron Can Foundation was founded by local Riverside residents Matt & Rory Dominick and it's mission is to provide a continuing legacy of care for families of children who need long-term medical care. You can learn more about how Cameron Can got started in Episode 18 of the Live Here Riverside podcast. Donations can be made online on the Cameron Can Foundation website.

Despite being a village of only 9,000 residents, Riverside seems to be full of folks doing interesting things within their chosen profession who also make time to give back to the small village we all call home. Today's guest is another fine example of someone who excels in doing both.
Shari Klyber is the director of the Early Childhood Development program at Principle Dance in nearby Forest Park and also serves on the Riverside District 96 School Board.
In our conversation, we discuss Shari's experience growing up around the country and how her background in physiology led to her current role at Principle Dance. We also learn about Principle Dance's beginnings in Riverside and how Shari's desire to bring a teacher's perspective to the school board lead to her decision to volunteer and run for the school board.
I hope you enjoy getting to know our neighbor Shari Klyber.
