My wife Catherine and I lived in Berkeley and San Francisco for 8 years before moving up to Seattle in 2004 to raise our 13 year old triplets. I'm originally from CT but now consider myself a West Coast transplant. My wife grew up in Seattle after having been born in Memphis. We met in graduate school in Boston originally. Much of our life in Seattle revolves around raising the triplets who are avid sports and arts participants. We will be climbing Mt Shasta a few weeks before this big trip to participate in my father's wedding (my Mother died 9 years ago). He's 74 and found someone else who he loves so our whole family is incredibly supportive and excited about the impending marriage. Other than that, my wife teaches Japanese Art History at the Univ of WA while finishing her PhD and I'm the CMO of (email hidden). We can't wait for the big weekend when we'll be in San Mateo!
