What has been your favorite place to live?
I have lived in several different areas of this country and always find something special about each place. I love exploring, learning new things about my environment from the locals. I find the people of the PNW to be very friendly and welcoming and hope to be considered a 'local' very soon!

Playing golf at the Wailea Blue Golf Course on Maui in Hawaii. The views are amazing and the air always smells of fresh flowers.
