We met as co-workers at a marketing agency in Seattle over eight years ago. After six months of working together, Scott asked Rahel out and the the rest is history! We love each other a lot. It's kind of a cheesy thing to declare, but it's true. We've explored different countries together, nurtured our careers and built a wonderful life together.
We live in a progressive and family-oriented neighborhood in Seattle, WA. Our mid-century home is bright and well-designed with two floors, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It's located on a quiet street with a private backyard and vegetable/herb garden. Our style is a combination of modern and cosy.
The newest member of our family would have their own bedroom- it's bright, large and overlooks our garden and trees.
We've got a piano in the living room that Scott normally plays on after dinner and interesting books in every room.
We're directly behind an excellent elementary school, wading pool and playground with panoramic views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Peninsula. We're walking distance to cafes and just minutes away from beaches, a zoo and other popular Seattle tourist sites!
I was born in Bellevue, Washington and have grown up all over the Greater Seattle area. I was the third of four kids, and the only boy. Our childhood was spent mostly outside -- baseball and fort-construction in the backyard, long road trips in our red '88 Dodge Caravan... Otherwise, it was all music, all the time. My parents loved to listen and perform. My mother was a professional pianist and passed on her deep love of classical music. I've picked up all kinds of instruments throughout my life -- piano, trombone, baritone, bass guitar, acoustic and electric guitar, banjo. I play piano almost daily and am looking forward to sharing my love for music with our children as they grow.
Despite growing up on opposite ends of the country, Rahel and I instantly connected over our true love: family.
I am the Director of Digital Strategy at a growing marketing agency in Seattle and spend most of my free time with our family and friends. We're so excited for the opportunity to grow our family through adoption and embark on this next adventure together!
I grew up in Maryland with three amazing sisters and two loving parents.
In 2016, I left my long-term role as a program manager at a major Seattle tech company to be a stay-at-home parent.
I happily spend my days parenting our son Yoni and look forward to being at home with our next child.
In my free time, I enjoy volunteering, working out, reading and catching up with friends and family.
I'm proud to be an African-American woman, so celebrating culture and diversity is important to our family. It's a tradition I am excited to pass on to our children.
