Steve-Will.jpgA little about me....

Hometown: I was born in California near L.A., but I moved up here to Bothell when I was 5 years old, so I consider Bothell to be my hometown!  It’s changed quite a lot over the years.  It used to be much more of a ‘small town’ with not much more than a few shops here and there.  Now it’s more like a growing suburban college town!

Studied / Lived Abroad: I’ve lived in Japan a few times as a student and have studied and worked in China for a total of about 3 years.  These are some of the most valuable experiences I’ve had in my life and I’ll never forget the friends I made and good times I experienced!

A few of my hobbies: One thing I LOVE to do is travel!  Whether it’s near or far, by car or plane, there’s nothing I enjoy more than seeing new sites, visiting places from my past, and experiencing the little things that make each place unique!

Something I Love About Seattle: The summers in Seattle are near perfect!  Great weather, long days, and lots to do!  Seattle summers really can’t be beat!

My Favorite Apps: I pretty much enjoy any app that lets me and my children make goofy faces!steve.JPG

My Favorite Store: My favorite place to shop lately is The Home Depot!  We just bought a new house and I’m really enjoying making little improvements here and there, so Home Depot has surprisingly been a frequent stop for me!

My First Job: While my first job after college was teaching English in China, my first “career” job was at the front desk for a department at Bellevue College.  This began my career in higher education!  I was actually their second choice, but the first choice refused the position!  Quite a surprise for me!

I bet you never knew that I..... When I was in college, I hiked to the top of Mount Fuji in Japan!  And the hike was during the night so we could see the sunrise from the top!
