I was raised and currently live in Seattle, though I have lived several other places besides the Pacific Northwest. My life seems to be experienced in distinct chapters: from Dominican farmer to student of Sociology, to landscaper, etc. in the most recent chapter, I've been learning to be a plumber. And, as with all other chapters, I've been really appreciating what I've had the opportunity to learn and the people I've been able to meet. And though the places I have lived have all been quite different, I have had the very good fortune to meet the most inspiring people everywhere I go.
