Seattle Furnished Suites was created in 1992 to accommodate individuals in need of a temporary living arrangement as they relocated for work, visited for medical treatment, permanently moved to the city, or for any of the numerous reasons people require short-time furnished housing in today's ever-changing world. Though it began began humbly with only two Bay Park suites, Seattle Furnished Suites now has thirty-five suites in seven different neighborhoods and continues to grow each year.
I currently work in real estate brokerage for Coldwell Banker. Officially, my career began in 1963; but unofficially, it began some time during my youth, when I started building small clubhouses and backyard hideaways for my friends.
Yet my interests and passions include much more than real estate.
I value public and private charity. I am an active member of Rotary International. My work with the organization has allowed me to travel around the world. I have worked on home-building and immunization projects in Ethiopia and Uganda, and on orphanage projects in Vietnam. My wife Jean and I help support a polio victim in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and an orphan student in Hai Phong, Vietnam with her education.
We also appreciate the arts, especially theater. My wife and I perennially travel to Ashland, Oregon to attend productions of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and various other plays. We also enjoy and attend the many excellent theaters in Seattle.
Most importantly, I love family. Jean and I delight in spending time with our three grown daughters and their families, all of whom fortunately live within a few miles of our home in Magnolia.
As a full-time assistant manager and interior designer for Seattle Furnished Suites, I handle some of the day-to-day operations and re-design the suites as they become available. My professional experience includes years of residential and commercial interior design, display merchandising, and customer service, so working with both suites and people comes naturally to me. My goals are to design comfortable yet stylish suites, and to provide our clients with a smooth transition to Seattle.
I was born and raised in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle. I have lived in other cities--in Alaska, Florida, North Carolina--but Seattle has always been closest to my heart. I love living in this city!
