It’s exactly 2 yrs. to this day that I hopped on a plane to live and work in Seattle!
I moved to Seattle April of 2010, for an opportunity to work with Microsoft through an organization called Teleion Consulting, LLC.
As a Campaign Execution Manager with the organization, I over saw worldwide campaign deployments and billateral communications under Bing!
It was a great experience that enabled me to develop my management and international communications skills. I also learned html and how to use the integrated marketing tool ExactTarget.
During my time in Seattle I discovered some pretty amazing things that changed my life!
- Travel Blogging Community
- Seattle Happy Hours
- The Great Outdoors
–> Crossfit <–
Outside of work I discovered Crossfit!
CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program. Crossfit has a phenomenal community of well-rounded, hard working, charismatic people who have impacted me in ways I can’t explain through words! I started Crossfitting at Urban Crossfit and have crossfited all over California, Indiana, Hong Kong, and Thailand.

Living in Seattle I developed an appreciation for sunshine and good weather
Any chance I had to be out doors I took it! I ran, biked, hiked, and enjoyed boat rides, kayaking, and sailing on the waters of Lake Union, Lake Washington and the Pudget Sound.
Great outdoor places to enjoy in Seattle are:
I’m so thankful for Seattle and the people and experiences that have changed me in ways I never thought possible!
In the words of Seneca, “Travel and change of place, impart new vigor to the mind” – my experience in Seattle was more than just a new vigor, it changed how I will live my life moving forward!
