Personal life and interests

I’m a born-and-raised Seattleite, and a North Capitol resident for the past 14+yrs where I live with my wife Tina and our twin boys. Our neighbors rock and I couldn’t wish for a better place for my kids to grow up. We got bit by the international travel bug many years back and are always on the look for a new destination.  I enjoy: live music, Grandma’s home-made Pho, the Seahawks, Twitter and Plants vrs Zombies with my boys.

Thanks for taking a look.
Take care, Eric.
