About Us

Our Story

Kevin & Nate met in 2013 through mutual friends in Orlando, FL at a BBQ. After taking the time to get to know each other and become friends, we began dating a few months later and knew we had discovered something special in each other.

After 6 years of dating, we made it official – surrounded by our loving family and close friends in Florida. Kevin even took the opportunity at the reception to express his musical talent by surprising Nate with the song he sang on their first date.

A job opportunity brought us to Seattle – and while it was incredibly hard to move away from close family, we are very lucky that we are still able to see them quite often.

We’ve now been married 2.5 years and in Seattle for 3, and are lucky enough to have a spacious home near the University of Washington and Lake Union with our beautiful and (mostly) well-behaved dogs, Sydney and Aspen. They love people – especially the “tiny humans” belonging to our friends and family that frequently stop by.

Over the 8 years we’ve been together, our relationship has grown even stronger through endured challenges, new experiences, and a shared respect for each other. We hope this page gives you a better idea of the love we share and the family we aim to expand.

Our Home

a part of North Seattle. This area appealed to us through it’s family-friendly makeup of well- rated schools, local parks, walkability, and restaurants.
As for the house, it’s a 3 bedroom, 2 bath 1918 restored craftsman bungalow. One of our favorite features is the deck, which on clear days has a view of the Cascade mountain range. Currently an office, the future nursery will be perfect being tucked towards the back of the house with lots of natural light.

Luckily, we have a big yard for the dogs and future kids for play time. We are fortunate to be near many parks that are perfect for picnics, sightseeing, and child play areas. The dogs love the stimulation and running around the parks in the area.
We also happen to be across the street from an international school that teaches 6 different languages and has been rated highly by locals. This will definitely be a great place for a child to get a solid foundational education and learn some elementary life skills.

Kevin

adoptive family photo - Kevin At a young age, Kevin and his family moved from New York to Florida, where his parents committed to careers in nursing.

The strong example showcased by Kevin’s parents influenced him to pursue a career in the medical field as well.

After working for the trauma unit as a nurse for a few years, he decided to enroll in graduate school to specialize in anesthesia – an incredibly challenging program.

After graduation, opportunity led Kevin to search outside of Florida for his and Nate’s next home. He is happily employed as a nurse anesthetist, providing anesthesia at a large academic medical facility, serving the Pacific Northwest region.
Kevin comes from a Filipino background and loves keeping family traditions alive, especially through cooking his mother’s recipes (some of his favorites are Lumpia and Pancit).

In his free time, Kevin enjoys home improvement, trying new local restaurants, reading, hiking, spending time with the pups, and traveling. He also keeps up with music through his guitar, piano, and occasional karaoke night.

Nate

After studying Psychology and receiving my Masters in Creative Writing, I decided to get a change of pace and work in the airline industry. It was an experience of a lifetime, and I was lucky to be able to travel frequently.
Always having a strong connection to family, I was overjoyed to become an uncle to nephew Saxman and nieces Mary and Eliza Kate - they really helped spark my desire to have kids of my own some day.
A few years later, I met Kevin and chose to pursue a career in digital marketing. I’m now happily employed as a marketing manager for a popular outdoor brand based in Seattle.
