Willie and I are a busy, creative couple. I'm a Seattle native, Willie hails from Washington, DC. Willie works in marketing and I am back in school studying to become a midwife. We spend our free time testing new restaurants in town, cooking recipes from the latest issues of Cook's Illustrated, planting vegetables in our back yard, and taking our dog, Lois, on long walks through the neighborhood. We have a great library of books and a decent record collection. We love filling our house with visitors who want to feel at home even when they're living out of a suitcase.
