I moved to Seattle-Tacoma area in 1997 and have lived here ever since. I love the eclectic diversity of the Pacific Northwest and its wide array of things to do and see. I'm especially a fan of the local arts scene, from Tacoma Art Museum to the 5th Avenue Theatre and everything in between, and the many great places to hike in Western Washington.
