2. Where is your favorite place to go in Seattle?
I’m a huge music fan, so I frequent a lot of record stores and clubs. Silver Platters, Everyday Music and Easy Street for the album; Showbox, Nuemos and Crocodile for the live show.
3. Your first interaction with Seattle Works was…?
I was a VISTA for their sister organization
in Olympia, and got to work with Seatle Works’ amazing team on a few projects.
4. What’s the best meal you’ve eaten in the Seattle area?
Tilikum Place has the best breakfast in the city.
5. Are you involved with any other Seattle nonprofit organizations?
I organize a lot of volunteer events for my office, but no commitments. The great thing about volunteering for SW is you get to work with so many different nonprofits.
6. Which coffee shop do you most frequent?
Cherry Street- there’s one right below my apartment and the coffee is great, too.
7. What three words best describe your experience with Seattle Works?
Best. Nonprofit. Ever.
8. Mariners, Sounders, or Seahawks?
I’m not a sports guy. I never give any thought to the teams beyond cursing the I90 traffic they cause.
9. What is your most (or first) memorable volunteer experience?
I volunteered at an all-ages, no-alcohol nightclub in my Wisconsin hometown for eight years. It was so great to work together with a group of like-minded people toward a cause I care about.
10. What makes someone a Seattleite?
A friendly demeanor and an open mind (and probably a couple of tattoos).
This weekly 10 question profile is Seattle Works way of highlighting and saying THANK YOU to all that our volunteers, leaders, community partners, board members, committee members, etc do for our community! We’re asking the same 10 questions to various Seattle Works participants as a fun way to feature the different ways to be involved with Seattle Works and in Seattle.
P.S. In case you’re interested, the inspiration behind these interviews comes from NY Mag’s weekly blog post.
