About Susan

I love the opposites of Silicon Valley, from entrepreneurship to peaceful retreat, from culture to beautiful natural settings. In addition to Moody Studio West on Moody Road in Los Altos Hills, we also have Moody Studio East in Back Bay, Boston

Why Susan chose The Bay Area

Moody Studio attracts a range of people, from entrepreneurs to inventors, filmmakers and artists, and those who just want to relax in beautiful natural surroundings.

What makes this studio unique

A great hybrid: the highspeed energy of Silicon Valley with the peaceful environment of the hills

Beautiful and artistic getaway

This is a beautiful and quiet place to relax or get work done, designed with a deep sense for style and art. It was my second stay here and I would return any time whenever travel permits.
