I grew up in Oregon, but spent college and the few years afterwards outside the northwest. There was one crazy year when I lived and worked in four different countries, including India! I'm now pretty firmly settled in Seattle. Every time I think about leaving I go on a hike or a backcountry ski trip or I eat delicious vegetables from my backyard and realize how lucky I am to be where I am.
I love Pemco Northwest Profiles. I do think of myself as "A lot like you, a little different". I am NW Profile #6: Urban Chicken Farmer. Skis in the Rain Guy. Relentless Recycler. Super-Long Coffee Orderer. Thank God I'm not the "4-Way Stop, You Go. No You Go. No You Go. Guy"--I'm a very decisive person.
