Just for Fun
Where do you currently live and what’s something you love about the area? I purchased a home in Federal Way in December! I love living in my hometown and that I’m so close to parks and restaurants. It’s a bit of a quiet town, which is perfect for me to enjoy and unwind after a long day of work!
What are some of your favorite activities/hobbies? A lot of my favorite activities revolve around computers and sports. I enjoy building custom computers whenever I have the budget to satisfy my fancier tastes. I’ve also recently gotten into golfing as a good, socially distanced sport, although a lot of the workout comes from simply walking the course.
What is something most people don’t know about you? People may not know that I’m actually a pilot! I have a private pilot’s license and several of my family members work for Alaska Airlines, so I got hooked into aviation at a young age.
What brought/attracted you to City Light? The utility initially attracted me because it checks all the boxes! This is a critical organization that does very important work in powering Seattle. My position allows me to fulfill my desire to apply my technology knowledge and experience and leverage that into a role that helps my community.
