At Home With Craig Venter

Craig Venter and his wife Heather Kowalski, and a miniature poodle puppy called Darwin, show off their new home in La Jolla to the Wall Street Journal. Venter bought the property three years ago for $6 million and then spent 18 months and $3 million renovating it. It now includes a screening room, gym, and sauna, as well as the large deck where Kowalski and Venter were married. "Craig is more relaxed here. It's a more efficient place for him. He can have his meetings down here and then run upstairs for a conference call. It really works," Kowalski says.
