My wife Cate and I live 30 miles north of Seattle, in Mukilteo, WA. We like the Northwest, but miss the sun during the long winter months. I used to hike and ski a lot, but now that we're older, we settle for walks, gardening, bike riding, taking time to smell the flowers, etc. I own a publishing company that publishes 3 community newspapers. Cate is a high school English and journalism teacher. We love to travel, see new places, meet new people, try new experiences.
