A Little Behind The Scenes Of My Life

What could be better than getting out and discovering new places, new perspectives, new skills and amazingly fresh air?! My wife, kids and I love to find new hiking trails, hot springs, campgrounds, farmers markets, live entertainment, and any new skill for us to acquire. Some of our favorite explorations have been to Banff, Canada; the Pacific coast, Priest Lake, Chinook Pass, and Glacier National Park. What were some of your favorite places to discover? I am all ears!!

Family means sooo much to me. This is home, comfort, authenticity at its worst and its finest. Family is my core community for personal growth, deepening my faith, and making life abundantly full. I love time spent with family whether we are renting a beach house together, weeding and planting seeds in the home garden or simply laughing it up with games around the dining table.

Fireworks are high energy art in the sky with a side of adrenaline and danger. Pyrotechnics caught my attention early in life and has grown into a professionally licensed hobby. I have been entertaining audiences with fireworks professionally now for 16 years with shows in Pullman, WSU football games, Spokane, St. Maries, Olympia, Lacey, Shelton, Yakima, over the Grand Coulee Dam, and at dozens of Tacoma Rainiers and Spokane Indians baseball games.

Where is your favorite place to camp?
As long as I can remember, I have been in love with camping and campfires. Growing up, my family instilled the value of being out in nature, sharing life around the crackle of a campfire before a night under the stars. Campfires have become a central point in the deep friendships I have developed. Now, I am pleased to pass on the values of a campfire and being outside with my growing family.

After graduating from high school, I was introduced to swing dancing. Unlike awkward high school dances, swing dancing had formal steps and moves that finally allowed dancing to make sense to me. As a trumpet player I love the 1930's, 40's, 50's music often played at social swing dances and look forward to live bands. If you have been to any swing dance clubs in Spokane, CDA, Pullman/ Moscow, Yakima, or Olympia, chances are, my wife and I were there.

If I could rate Nate more than 5 stars I would. Nate captured our whole wedding day perfectly. The pictures were amazing and came back in a timely manner. He was very easy to communicate and work with. My husband and I will have memories to last a lifetime because of him.
