I am a dad: 3 kids ranging in age from 13 to 21. Each is incredibly important to me. My family is noisy; I'm generally quiet: thoughtful, witty and smart (enough). I enjoy travel but don't do it sufficiently frequently.
I have lived in and visited many places but my heart belongs to the Pacific Northwest. Some of the places I've been include: Costa Rica, France, Germany, China, Japan, Thailand, Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua, Canada, Austria, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden.
I'm equally comfortable in 5-star hotels and $3/night hostels. Okay, that's not completely true: a 5-star hotel is more comfortable.
I'm a bicycle commuter and brave the traffic daily, regardless of the Seattle rain. I enjoy staying active but I also enjoy a good donut. I'm a big fan of movies. I flirt with vegetarianism but always return to the deliciousness of meat.
Despite long-term, in-city living, I've raised hens, turkeys, bees and a dog. No goats yet but they're probably on the horizon.
As a guest, I am conscientious and polite.
