Tracie De Silva, Hospitality Manager | Captain Spillian
Tracie brings together a million different strands for each of our events, from putting elegant flourishes on tables, to managing our event staff, and serving as the most gracious maker-of-all things possible for our wedding couples and workshop attendees. She is a living example of the soul of Spillian and its generosity.
Amanda Goodchild, Mistress of All Things
We’ve discovered that there is one thing in the entire world that Amanda doesn’t do well: making popcorn on the stove. Other than that, she is a key force in virtually everything that happens at Spillian. You might find her charming the crowd as she tends bar, climbing a ladder to roof a new building, delicately painting a piece of trim work, or anything in between.
Nancy Madero, Head Keeper of the Hearth
Simply put, Nancy is why Spillian gleams. We are looking for a way to bottle and/or patent her energy so we can retire on the proceeds. She is assisted by her daughter Christine, who shows up whenever we call in a panic, ready to tackle whatever gets thrown at her.
Brandon works with partner Mark Somerfield to re-imagine the grounds at Spillian. They’ve been doing exquisite stonework, shaping paths and sculpting the forest, and taming the world’s most adventuresome driveway.
Resident maker of fires. Miguel is an acclaimed visual artist who lives just down the hill from Spillian, and who has become the maker of our extraordinary bonfires for weddings and events. They are ephemeral works of art.
