Resident Bio:

I live in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood with my wife, Alyssa. In my free time I love exploring all the Pacific Northwest has to offer with my wife, friends, and black labrador, Ella.

As they say, “The days are long, but the years are short” – and I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to spend them with!
