I am a tech program manager in Seattle. I work in EMC’s Isilon business unit.
For fun I research local history. In Fall of 2013 my first book was published, Lost Seattle (follow link for sub-site). I write a rephotography column in the Westside Weekly newspaper and on Capitol Hill Seattle blog. I started with a series on Seattlest.com which has gone zombie. I serve on the Mayor’s Landmarks Preservation Board.
Press for Lost Seattle: Paul Dorpat in the Seattle Times; Justin Carder in Capitol Hill Seattle Blog; Scott Schafer in B-Town Blog; Knute Berger in Crosscut; Tim Robinson in Westside Weekly/Highline Times.
Past activities included board member of Pacific Northwest Historians Guild, chair of the Mayor’s Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board, and member of the urban design plan advisory board for Seattle’s International District. Incidentally, I’m certified fluent in Japanese.
